Unable to boot Windows 2000 in normal or safe mode. Receiving blue screen of death with the following advisory:

The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

I've archived the software files and posted them to alt.binaries.misc

My emergency repair diskette failed. Can anyone look at these files and see if they can be repaired?

Thanks in advance.

Hiya and welcome

Did it have an error number at all? eg:

Stop: 0xc0000218 {Registry File Failure}

I have found this article, where it says:

Stop: 0xc0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SYSTEM or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.
NOTE: The parameters in parentheses are specific to your system configuration and may differ each time.
