  1. What if you don't have a xp cd or don't know anyone with a xp CD what do you do if you can't get rid of the problem no way out??

  2. Thats the correct and professional way, but there is a much faster way to do the same.
    Enter the Windows XP Recovery Console. The Recovery Console is an advanced diagnostic mode of Windows XP with special tools that will allow you to restore the boot.ini file.

    When you reach the command line (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.

    bootcfg /rebuild

    The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results.

    Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.

    The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All). Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.

    The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier. This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.

    The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options: Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.

    Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC. Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

  3. i did not delete system32 om my windows 8 laptop beasuce my firefox is not repsonding so i need to shut it down to make it normal everytime i turn it on IT SAYS PEPARING AUTOMATIC REPAIR AND IT POPED UP

  4. I read every comment looking for the answer that many had asked on here. I could not find the answer either. I will post this because i took a risk that worked out so I can now answer the question that many of you were waiting for. When you try to copy the first file to the bak folder and if it says "file cant be copied" in which my case it said this. Just ignore that and go thru the rest of the instructions and for me it worked like a charm. I did not have a backup of by business data and this video saved me thousands of dollars of accounts recievable and hours and hours of re entering date. Thank you for this video it save me tons of money and frustration and Time. God Bless. MAGA….

  5. This worked for those who liked this video ….. but those who disliked , spent hours on it and gave up on life🤣🤣💀

  6. Hi. Allow me to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your very informative video on how to fix my registry error message. My windows is now working but the screen is not the same as before. I shall backup all my data and reformat my entire drive and reinstall all one by one as you suggested. Thanks you again, Sir! Cheers.

    and this idiot who does not have any knowledge on system comes and miss guide people .in wrong way . and what kind of fool this person is . typing every time starting from system 32 til file .when pressing up arrow gets the previous command typed 😂😂😂😂😂

  8. Hi Will, I am experiencing the very same problem you just described in this YouTube video. When I typed in the command
    md tmp, I received the message, this file already exit. So, I named it tmp2. Then I started entering the other commands. C:WINDOWS> copy c:windowssystem32configsystem, software, sam, security, and default. However, the only 2 files that did not take was Sam and Security. I double-checked the spelling and file folder procedure for Sam and Security and it was correct. Needless to say, my Windows XP Pro system still will not boot and this is a new Windows XP installation on a new SATA 1T. HDD. So, how do I correct the Sam and Security command error?
    One other thing, I read that in order to get my OS to recognize the my new SATA drive one must press F6 during Setup.Could this possibly create the problem with the drive booting properly?

    If possible could you possibly email me so we can discuss this issue in detail? My email address is: akid1704@gmail.com
