Here is my problem and a mean one: :mad:
I get this message "Windows/System32/Config/System file missing or corrupt" when I try to boot into XP Pro and get no further. I have read all the info on how to fix this using the Recovery Console with the XP Install Disks but the problem is I am in Korea for a few months while my disks are on some other continent. So I have the XP Home which I can boot into and runs well. And I still can get into the partition with XP Pro on it from XP Home.
So is there a way I can fix or restore some files using my access from XP Home? Can I restore a backup of the System file? This may be a silly question but could I copy the XP Home System file into the Config folder on XP Pro, replacing the corrupted file with the XP Home System file?
Hope anyone can help. My XP Home version is in Korean while I mostly use the XP Pro which is in English.(I don't speak Korean, my wife does).
I don't have SP2 installed on either and not even SP1 on XP Pro but I did have all the latest updates from Microsoft.
Anyone have any ideas?
By the way, my machine is a Toshiba Satellite 3000 with 512MB of ram and 30Gb of hard drive divided equally between the two OS's.
