System 32 is a folder so it's probably saying there is a file missing or corrupt from that folder.

Either way, you're going to need a recovery disc or recovery partition.

Is your operating system Windows 10?

System32 is a folder. There is no guarantee that the contents of your folder is identical to someone else's. If it mentions a particular file you might be able to copy it over but it is not easy on a machine that won't boot - using Linux for this has possibilities. More likely you will need a proper Windows recovery.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
