I have my pc with dual booting of win98 and winxp.I have mcafee installed on my pc, recently i tried to run a patch of mcafee on winxp which didn't run. Then i restarted my pc and booting in winkp gave me error \WINDOWS\system32\config file missing and it said to run repair. I tried to boot my pc from winxp cd while in procces it gave me Blue Screen error which says to check for bios updates or to remove driver for newly installed hardware. I tried to run fresh setup of winxp but still i am getting the same blue screen error, also i have formated the drive but didn't work. There is no problem when i try to boot in win98.

just did a quick format from within win98

try a full format ,not a quick in 98if you still get blue screen do it from the winxp cd if you can get that far ,but do a full format not a quick one

the blue screen I believe that I depend on an error in yours hard disk. to times he can succeed that you have broken some cluster of yours hard disk. (Sorry for my english :-) )
Try a scan of your hard disk with a specific software

Don't worray about the bsod the format should have taken care of it unless its ram related .

no special software needed just you winxp cd ,if you ever get the BSODagain you can use this info ,check microsoft site ,the command you need to run is the "chkdsk /r"
