    When attempting to start a Toshiba mini NB205-N312/BL laptop I get the following error message almost immediately:

    “windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

    \windows\system32\config\system

    You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD_ROM.

    Select ‘r’ at the first screen to start repair.”

    If I then reboot and select windows xp setup it takes me to a error screen stating:

    “a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this appears again, follow these steps:

    Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run chkdsk /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.
    Technical Information:

    *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7A56524,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)”

    At this point I decided I only wanted to reimage the laptop completely and start from scratch. However when I attach the USB CD drive and boot to the install windows XP PRO CDROM I get the same error previously indicated, after about 2 minutes of windows reading from the CDROM and loading files.

    Any ideas of what is causing this and how I can reimage this device or run chkdsk?

    thanks doug

    1. On start up , press F2 to enter BIOS

    2. go to the advanced section

    3. scrol down to SATA controller mode

    4. Change this from "AHCI" to "compatability mode"

    Save an reboot. Can now load new o/s
