NLS data missing

Yesterday after "unmasked" the administrator account on my Vista pro, everything was broken and it is impossible to restart. I get this error: "General Failure charger operating system 0xc000009". "NLS data missing". I don't have any idea about this. Can anyone help?

Thank you.

Restart the system and Press F8. There is an option to repair startup. You should be able to run a repair on the start up files without the requirement of the DVD.

If you have access to another Vista machine, use a USB stick and copy the nls files from that install to the one you cannot boot. You can do that using a Knoppix or similar linux live cd that can write to NTFS. Also copying them from another XP install fixed it and made it bootable.

Re: NLS data missing

Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore:
  • Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and
  • then start the computer.
  • Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD
  • or DVD *". appears.
  • Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method,
  • and then click Next.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your
  • Windows installation and click Next
  • At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.
  • Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the
  • appropriate restore point.
  • Click Finish to restore the system.
