I found this forum after doing a search on google trying to fix a problem I had on my desktop PC. One of my other PCs was running a database search while I was trying to grab a file out of one of it's shared folders, and the PC I was trying to copy the file to locked up. I got a red bar shaped video glitch at the top of the screen and the whole system just froze. The host pc of the file was not affected. I proceeded to reset the affected PC and upon reboot, it said /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM was missing or corrupt and I could repair it with WinXP disc and recovery console. I put the disc in the drive and rebooted... when I tried to go to recovery console or windows setup from the cd, the system bluescreens with PAGE_FAULT_IN_A_NONPAGED_AREA. System will not go in safe mode, or any other windows boot option from the F8 menu. My system is a AMD 1800+ 1.5 Ghz with 786MB of RAM running WinXP Home SP2 I am able to boot the PC using a BartPE disc, WITHOUT the bluescreen of death, but from the Windows XP disc (the same one used to CREATE the BartPE) it bluescreens each and every time. HELP ME???? I am not sure I posted that in the right section... I am reposting this in Windows OS too.... also, I read about people posting minidumps from a folder called windows/minidumps/ I don't have that directory in my windows directory..
