Gateway System Recovery Problem

  luckycaribou 18:46 09 Feb 2010

Trying to do a system recovery on a Gateway with xp. Did recovery using disk supplied with computer when purchased. Says recovery is complete n needs to restart the computer. When it restarts it says windows did not start successfully. Cant start in "safe mode", if i choose "start windows normally" it just brings me back to the same screen, and if i choose "last known good configuration" it says windows could not start cause following file is missing or corrupt \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Have you tried running the recovery disk a second time, in case something went wrong during the first run?
