    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.

    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.
