I was given a computer to fix and it has the EXACT same problem as the poster above me has posted with all other problems that he/she listed. The problem is Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINNT\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM and I CANNOT enter safe mode, boot from floppy, boot from cd, use any dos commands or do anything else. I was also given this computer and wasn't told which OS is currently on it. On the side of the computer there is a genuine Windows ME sticker but that's about all I can figure out, seeing as I can't boot into a startup floppy, XP setup/recovery console or safe mode. :S Any help will be appreciated. Anyone? This is important.
