    Yesterday my charger broke and my laptop had no battery in, so switched off instantly. Upon restarting the laptop I get the screen;

    Windows Boot Manager
    Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the Problem:​
    1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.​
    2. Choose your language settings, and click "Next."​
    3. Click "Repair your computer."​
    If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.​
    File: \Windows\system32\config\system​
    Status: 0xc000014c​
    Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt.
    ENTER=Continue ESC=Exit

    And nothing works.

    I tried pressing F10 but all I get is;

    Edit Windows Boot Options For: Windows 7

    Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

    Partition: 2
    Hard Disk: 839ccf8


    No matter what I do at this screen it just goes back into the loop!

    I've tried F8 but there are no repair options, just the usual Safe Mode etc.

    I tried booting from a Windows 7 DVD my friend "made" from me, but it didn't detect the disk? Possibly because it was home made? Damn pirates *shakes fist*

    My knowledge is very limited, any help would be great!
