    I have a Dell OptiPlex GX620 running Windows XP SP3. Today, I turned it on and got this message: Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. And it says I need to boot the CD in order to repair Windows XP but the problem is that I don't have the CD. How would I fix the problem?
