I have a Mac but a few years ago a friend duel booted it for me. My computer is pretty old now and I use to be able to hold down the option button and it would let me choose my hard drive to start up from, after a while it stopped letting me do that and I have to go in and choose a startup disk from the main screen. Well, while I was on the Windows side I got a blue screen of death and now every time it starts up it says
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
Well for whatever reason it is not recognizing my Windows XP startup disk at all. The same screen "Windows could not start" keeps happening over and over.
Can anyone help me?
