So yeah, it happened.
Here's my issue, I don't have the CD of windows. I may be able to get a copy later this week but I was wondering if, since I DO have Ubuntu installed and can run that and access both hard drives and the windows/system32/config/ folder if there were any files I can download to place in that folder. Any help is appreciated. Thanks :)
I did try something I saw on another thread where you copy the files from the repair folder to the config folder and it semi-worked. What I mean by that is that it got to the screen where there is the windows logo and the little blue load bar at the bottom, then locked up and I had to hard-restart. So I moved the old corrupted files back.
