BIOS DIDNT RUN THROUGH AND FILE CORRUPTED

2009-12-14, 18:58 PM

I tried to format my computer last week but when I got into the BIOS, it didn't run through.

It says "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \minint\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"

"You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows setups using the original setup CD-ROM."

 

I guess the file that missing is one of those windows file?

What should I do? Should I purchase the lenovo original CD backup?

 

Help is much appreciated!

Hi Andrea,

 

My laptop is TTT type 7658-RVU. I was using XP before.

The problem started when my computer got virus. I started to format with XP that I save on external HD. Everything was smooth until the blue screen appeared (the normal blue screen when you install a new windows) and suddenly crashed after the BIOS screen came up, it didn't go through. The XP wasn't installed properly.

I tried various methods to solve this problem because there were several error messages that I got in BIOS but didn't work out.

 

So right now I have this message when I start up the laptop:

 

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

\minint\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

 

"You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows setup using the original Setup CD-ROM".

 

It looks like I'm missing a file for the XP installation?
