is this a prebuilt set or a store bought set?
just got new MSI MOBO.I cannot get my XP to run on it.
I get message saying that WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG file is missing or corrupt. I have tried using PATA and SATA drives. I have installed XP on the drives using a different MOBO. in all cases the install goes just fine, but when I try to use XP after the install is done (or I put in the drive after installing on another MOBO). I get this error. I have tried to correct using the recovery council and all other kinds of tricks mentioned on the web. nothing works.
could it be that I need to install some kind of raid stuff (SATA) 1st? but it even happened with PATA.
