Help - Error booting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Loaded up a map on BF2, it froze. I had to turn off.
OK, When I boot, I get the message:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\config\\SYSTEM

It then states to run Windows Setup and press 'R' at the welcome screen.
Tried it, nothing happened. It carried on through the setup program, and ended up installing Windows again. Now I have my original files and settings, accesible, but none of my programs working, with all the new SYS files under Windows0
I can choose which version to start up at startup, but selecting the old still gets the message.
Where do I start.

backup evertyihg needed and start all over, either setup new partitions in windows setup will delete evertyhing, or by restarting in MS-DOS mode and typing 'format C:'. but thats only if you really want to start over, but i dont know any other way to solver your problem...sorry
