Hi all, sorry if not posted in the right place, I was using my PC over the weekend, shut it down like I always do and went out. When I came back I turned it on and it started to boot up. BUT instead of going to the normal Windows XP loading screen (the one before login) it came up in DOS and said the the c:\Windows\system\config file was missing and to insert the CD and press 'r' to repair the problem... Well that would be ok but my CD drive is not attached at the moment (and hasn't been for some time now) as it was fed a sandwich by my younger son. and is waiting to be replaced.
Is there any way around this without using the CD ??????
This PC was shop bought and has been working for years.
