What to do if one is stuck on Windows Error Recovery screen. I am facing this from last couple of days. I need help to fix my system as it had stopped working from morning. I had turned on my computer and my system crashed. And the recovery process started. But the OS stucked on Windows Error Recovery Screen. It is not at all moving above that. I cannot find any higher number of options other than this that I can try. The error recovery screen shows to be working but did stucked at some point. I had inserted Windows installation disc and rebooted my computer. I had started Windows repair environment. But the repair too fails and do not work well. The error that I receive as 0xc00000e9 " windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt." related to some file located in \windows\system32\config\system. This looks like a complicated solution to me. There is no way that I can fix this thing. My old drive has stopped working and I had added this new one on which I got this error. Things went quiet well at the time of installation there were no error at all. I just turned on the PC last night and in the morning when I turned the same on, I got this thing appeared. I can even not use the drivers CD but it must atleast boot to show up Windows.
