Specs: Windows XP, 512
I recently formatted my 160gb hard drive and it showed that it had 132 gbs used space after the format, i was confused. I tried to defrag it and now I get this message,

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CONFIG\SYSTEM

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair...

Now i have put the original xp cd in and press r, ive tried f9 for express recovery but all that it does is loop and come back to the same end point showing the above message. I am running short of ideas so could anyone pelase help.

When you format you lose everything.

To format you have to have the bios set to boot from the XP CD.

Make sure the XP CD is in the drive & reboot.

Follow the screen info.
