I had a boot sector virus(I think) and could not boot my Lenovo Think centre 6239. I tried everything including AVG boot disk and ran scans. I still am not able to re-format the computer with XP Pro. it tells me"windows\system32\config\system" file is missing or corrupt. It cannot find my c drive in mini xp. Is the registry part of the xp install? How can I get it back? Thanks in advance

If you are trying to reformat the computer, use the advance install to delete the hard drive partition. Then create a new one to reinstall Windows

The two I have used are install disks....It first copies the windows files and then starts the install procedure...that's when I get the error

I appreciate the help. I fixed the problem by installing win 7 which had the necessary drivers to run. Thanks
