I have a Windows XP machine that lost its power supply. After replacing it, I received an error stating that "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM."
I tried using Microsoft Knowledge Base Document KB307545, but it still returns the same message. If I buy a new machine and want to put my old drive in it, do I have to reload the drive?
