I am receiving an error while starting Windows XP on my ten year old computer (D845PEBT2) that says
Windows cannot start because the following file is missing or corrupt: Windows\system32\config\system You can attempt to repair this file Run setup from CD Press 'r' on the setup screen
In the safe mode and every other mode that is available in the list of startup options, I receive the same error message.
I tried to install another operating system (Windows 2002 SP2), but when the setup is running, the files are copied successfully from the CD and when it says trying to detect previous operating systems, I receive a blue screen that says:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
