I am working on a Dell Dimension L800CXE fo a friend. I am an advanced user but am getting a " File missing or corrupt Windows\System32\Config\System" error at boot up. My friend cannot find Dell Recovery CD. Is there any way possible that I can boot from a Windows XP Pro CD and use the Recovery Console to replace the file? If so what command do I need to use?
I have checked Bios settings and while I'm waiting for a reply, I am going to try to use the Windows XP Pro CD to do a Check Disk from the Recovery Console.

System Specs:
Intel Celeron 800MHz
Windows XP Home Edition (installed)
256 MB RAM PC 133
20GB HDD Seagate
