    Hi,
    I just replied to another post in this forum and I rebooted. This is the message I got: "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 cd Rom. Select "r" at the first screen to start repair".
    I then rebooted again and everything came up normally.
    Anybody have any ideas?
    Thanks
