Following a couple of power cuts, Windows (XP Home SP2) cannot start because \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM is "missing or corrupt".
When I try to use the XP install CD to repair, as recommended by the error message, I get a blue screen with a BAD_POOL_CALLER message. Error code is 0x000000C2 (0x00000043,0xC3059000,0x00000000,0x00000000).
What does this mean? I've removed all PCI cards - what should I try next?
Been there too, but can't make much sense of it. As far as I can see, my "Parameter 1" is 0x43, which doesn't feature in the list. And how do I get my hands on the "Kernel Debugging tool" referred to? And if it is something to do with a driver, how can I fix it when I can't even get the PC running?
