|Ok being sort of a tech myself, I followed the rest of the guide i used before(which before i did not because i was aggro haha), and this COMPLETELY restored my user account and ALL my settings and drivers were restored. |
This basically tells you how using recovery console to add back your previous system restore dates(that is if they were created or never deleted). After you do the last step when you boot up it should be back to normal. whew!!!!
The original errors I received caused me to run this guide, however it did not fix my problem.
This was the original error. Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE
The previous guide addresses that. But I have to use FIXMBR and FIXBOOT to get my system back running. I used the second half of that guide that explains how to add the system restore dates back to the System Volume Information folder. The rest is in that guide.
Thanks for any help and I hope my fix helps you.
