Save all data on D:\ that you can't do without and format the drive. Then install it back into the original pc and reinstall the OS. Then copy back all the data.
Something the children have done has crashed my wife's computer. It won't boot up and it will not allow me to do a selective boot up or access any of the restore functions. Further, when I attempt to boot up from the CD (I've tried both, my XP Pro cd and my Norton Systemworks 2005 cd) it loops me right back to the crash error. The error was cannot locate system hard drive due to a corrupt or missing system32 config or sys file.
I removed the hard drive and installed it on my system, which has labeled it D drive. I can access all directories, etc. Is there a way for me to repair or restore her hard drive using my system?
All hard drives: Windows XP Pro SP 2
Many thanks in advance, Rob.
