|OK, so when I switch it on, it says that windows\system32\config\system is corrupt or missing and to attempt repair press r. And it sometimes say ntoskrnl.exe is corrupt or missing (But i think reconnecting the keyboard/mouse pad fixes that. Is that correct?)|
I haven't got a boot disc, or a cd rom drive, but I have got a hard drive caddy and I can access the files via that.
So what I want to know is, if I bought a (windows xp) boot disc and put that into my main laptop (windows 7-which has a cd rom drive) could I manually copy and replace corrupted files with "non-corrupted" ones so I can use my laptop again?
This has happened before, I copied the files from i386 (NTFS.SYS) but this system file that is corrupted isn't in i386 nor is ntoskrnl.exe.
