Hi, everyone out there, I wonder if anyone could help, my computer doesn't start up because of a missing or corrupted file, it states:
\WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM, it directed me to go to repair console, but I know there should be an easier way, please can anyone help me to walk through?

can you give the exact error please?

try this:

turn on computer and straight away keep tapping the F8 or F5 key

choose 'last known good configuration' from the list maybe and press enter.

also try selecting 'safe mode' from the list if the above doesnt work.

if safe mode works it may just be software you have installed causing problems. try uninstalling any software you installed recently.

if that doesnt work then try click here or click here if safe mode doesnt work.

Thanks, tapping F5 or F8 only takes me to COMOS Setup, I remember there was an error messages saying that the window trying to update a password (I didn't set any password) and then it was the bsod ,then it said window could not start because of the following file is missing or corrupt:
\WINDOW\system32\config\SYSTEM
P.S.
My system is setup in RAID 10
