When I press CPU power button to start windows I get this message:

Could not find c:\windows\system32\config\system

I did the following thing to get the problem solved.

When you get the message:
Could not find c:\windows\system32\config\system

* Insert the Windows XP CD.
* Press 'r' to repair on the FIRST SCREEN
[i.e when you are asked the 3 options ..... 1. To install a fresh copy of the windows xp, press ENTER, 2. To repair, press 'r', etc etc.].
* You 'll command prompt window. Where you 'll be asked the option to enter. Enter 1.
* Type the following:

Code:
[B][COLOR=DarkOliveGreen]cd system32\config
ren system system.old
copy ..\..\repair\system
exit[/COLOR][/B]
----------------------
I think the Problem would be solved.
