Basically your OS install is corrupt, leaving you with two choices:
1: You can try a repair install, which leaves your data intact, but you will almost certainly need to reinstall all your programs
2: You can format the drive and start with a fresh install. You lose all data and programs this way (which is why you have backups), but it's a clean break, and a chance to start fresh
Hello all, my IBM thinkpad which is about 4 years old has come up with the following message.
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt
You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows Setup using the original Setuo CD-ROM
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
Any clues on how to fix this? I have tried inserting the operating system disk-no good.
I have tried to start in safe mode-no good.
Everything I do seems to end up back at this message.
Thanks in advance!
