yeah the cd does work cause i have use it to reinstall on the laptop i'm using now and on my pc i had b4.. just this one is giving me the grief.. i have done a low level format and reinstalled windows again and now i get a black screen and it says, windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM during install there are no signs of a bad install, everything works fine and completes fully.. when it reboots after that i get this message.. i have read on the net to try repair the install by using the cd to boot up the recovery console, but now when i do this after i try boot from the cd it say detecting harware, then the screen goes black and just hangs.. any info or help would be much appreciated.. i've never had so much trouble b4.. i'm getting grey over this pc..
i'm using a copy of a normal one i got off a friend.. it pretty old, no service packs
yes i done the f6 thing, windows installation completes fully.. when it reboots after that is when i get the error screen..
