Hi and welcome

I usually boot with the XP CD to the Recovery Console, then you can type in commands.
I use Chkdsk /r
This locates bad sectors and recovers readable information on the hard drive.

In another thread in which we were sparring you asked if I had any comments on this one. I don't have much to add. I know little about the recovery console abilities and think that what Cheeseball81 said is precisely correct--run

Chkdsk /r

After disk problems are fixed Cheeseball81 or somebody may have suggestions on further repair attempts. Do the chkdsk /r and try again to boot into Windows.

Hiya khatikbbdn72.

As if confirmation is needed, chkdsk /r is indeed what you need to type into the recovery console to check and recover system files and bad sectors. (Note the space between the k and the /r).

Once you can get it booted to desktop, then it`s a whole new scenario.

thanks for the response brothers and letting me back to my thread.. and sorry for late reply

well, i tried to recover my windows in recovery console using "chkdsk /r"
and it checked my disk and showed "problem fixed"......
but am still not able to boot up to the desktop.
it restarts again and again..

one good thing that i got this time... while starting windows it showed at a stage
"windows\system32\config\system" MISSING OR CORRUPTED

now is it possible to replace this file or repair..
hopefully this time it might get solved..
thanx in advance
