Hello my daughters laptop has a black screen with the message "windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupted


You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup cdrom

Selecting r doesn't do anything and when I try to tap f8 and use other options it always reverts back to the same screen as above, please help as I've pictures of my daughter when she was a baby on it that I would love to get onto a usb
