    Missing or Corrupt \windows\system32\config\system

    Hi Im trying to fix a Dell dimensions 8400, im getting the error message that windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt

    \windows\system\config\system

    I have tried to resolve this problem through the recovery console however as soon as I press "1" to identify the area I want to work with in the recovery console I get a

    "bad_pool_caller" blue screen.

    Has anyone got any ideas how to resolve this??

    I think that if you want to fix the problem that you are facing, then you will have to do a clean reinstall of windows xp. In case if you have never reformatted your computer before, the Dell Dimension 8400 requires a "raid" driver be installed at the beginning of the process of installing windows xp. Go to the dell support and download the driver from their.
