Unhappy Windows 7 Boot Loop
Yesterday my charger broke and my laptop had no battery in, so switched off instantly. Upon restarting the laptop I get the screen;

Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the Problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
File: \Windows\system32\config\system
Status: 0xc000014c
Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt.
ENTER=Continue ESC=Exit

And nothing works.

I tried pressing F10 but all I get is;

Edit Windows Boot Options For: Windows 7

Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Partition: 2
Hard Disk: 839ccf8


No matter what I do at this screen it just goes back into the loop!

I've tried F8 but there are no repair options, just the usual Safe Mode etc.

I tried booting from a Windows 7 DVD my friend "made" from me, but it didn't detect the disk? Possibly because it was home made? Damn pirates *shakes fist*

My knowledge is very limited, any help would be great!
