Hi !!

I have 2 hard disks on my PC and both have win xp installed.
When I start up I get windows/system/config file missing error and windows xp does not start up.
The funny thing is that the same message appears no matter which of the 2 os I choose at start up.
However when I move the same 2 hard drives to another computer they work perfectly.

I read somewhere on the internet to remove the pc battery with the main power disconnected and leave it overnight. I tried this and it worked. However when I reboot again the system/config file missing error is back.

The system also does not boot from cd even after me changing the bios settings but previously it used to boot from cd without problems.

PLEASE HELP URGENTLY
