"STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive(file):
\systemroot\system32\config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable"


That's the error I get. I get it when the Windows loading bar fills up. Any idea what the problem is or how to fix it?

Thanks!:icon_smile:

Does anyone own a copy of ant bytes boot? if so, how does that work?

I have found that a lot of times unmountable boot volume on a desktop is usually a fault with the optical drive.
