HirrensBootCD-options

Step 4: Restore the corrupted registry file from Windows Restore folder.

1. When “Mini Windows XP” is loaded, open Windows explorer and find the “C:\System Volume Information” folder.

system-volume-information

2. Open “System Volume Information” and inside it you should find another folder with a name like this:

e.g “_restore{1GSJJKxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx…)”. *

* The second part of this folder name is random

image

3. Open that random folder  e.g. “_restore{1GSJJKxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx…)”, to view its contents.

Now you should view some folders with name RPxx (e.g RP2, RP3, etc.)

image

4. Find the “RPxx” folder with the newest modification date and open it.

image

5. Inside “RPxx” folder, find and open the “snapshot” folder.

image

6. Now inside the “snapshot” folder, you should view these files:

a. _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE

b. _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM

image

7. Now depending on which registry file was corrupted, perform one of the two following actions:

a. If “SOFTWARE” registry file is corrupted, then you should receive this error at windows startup:

“Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE

How to fix “\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE” error:

i. Copy “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE” file to “C:\WINDOWS|SYSTEM32\CONFIG” folder and

ii. Rename “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE” file to “SOFTWARE” *

Notice*: If “SOFTWARE” file exists in “C:\WINDOWS|SYSTEM32\CONFIG” folder you must delete it or move it in another location.

OR

a. If “SYSTEM” registry file is corrupted, then you should receive this error at windows startup:

“Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM”

How to fix “\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM” error:

i. Copy “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM” file to “C:\WINDOWS|SYSTEM32\CONFIG” folder and

ii. Rename “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM” file to “SYSTEM” *

Notice*: If “SYSTEM” file exists in “C:\WINDOWS|SYSTEM32\CONFIG” folder you must delete it or move it in another location.

Step 5. Boot to Windows

After performing the copy and rename actions, take out the CDROM out from the CD DRIVE and reboot your computer.

Now, your computer should normally boot in Windows.

Attention: If you cannot find files inside “System Volume Information” folder, it means that System Restore feature was disabled in the problematic computer. If this happens, then you should try to copySOFTWARE” or “SYSTEM” registry file from inside “C:WINDOWS\REPAIR\” folder to “C:\WINDOWS|SYSTEM32\CONFIG” folder.

This procedure does not guarantee full recovery of the system to a previous state, however, you should be able to recover your data.

      “Windows XP tidak dapat memulai karena berkas berikut hilang atau rusak:
      \ WINDOWS \ SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG \ SYSTEM ”
      atau
      “Windows XP tidak dapat memulai karena berkas berikut hilang atau rusak:
      \ WINDOWS \ SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG \ SOFTWARE ”

      Jika Anda ingin tinggal terus dilindungi dari ancaman malware, yang sudah ada dan masa depan, kami menyarankan Anda untuk menginstal Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO dengan mengklik di bawah (kita mendapatkan komisi dari penjualan yang dihasilkan dari link ini, tapi tanpa biaya tambahan untuk Anda, dan tolong mengerti bahwa kita memiliki pengalaman dengan software ini dan kami merekomendasikan hal ini karena membantu dan berguna):

      Kesalahan rusak registri kesalahan umum pada Windows XP. Alasan untuk kesalahan ini tidak spesifik. Masalahnya mungkin karena hard disk gagal, memori buruk (RAM), korupsi listrik, dll

      Untuk mengatasi kesalahan di atas mengikuti proses di bawah:
      Langkah 1. Download Hiren BootCD

      1. Dari komputer lain men-download “Hiren BootCD”.

      (Hiren BootCD Download page: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/

      Gulir halaman ke bawah dan klik pada “Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip”)

      hirrens boot cd

      2. Klik kanan pada “Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip” file dan ekstrak.

      gambar
      Langkah 2: Membakar Hirens BootCD ke disk optik.

      3. Dari dalam “Hirens.BootCD.15.2” folder, menemukan “Hiren BootCD.15.2.ISO.” Disk file gambar dan membakarnya ke CD.

      gambar
      Langkah 3: Boot komputer bermasalah dengan Hirens.BootCD.

      1. Ambil CD keluar dari perekam Anda dan masukkan pada bermasalah ‘s komputer drive CDROM. *

      Perhatikan *: Pertama pastikan bahwa CDROM Drive terpilih sebagai perangkat boot pertama dari dalam BIOS Anda.

      2. Restart komputer Anda.

      3. Ketika “BootCD Hiren” menu akan muncul di layar Anda, gunakan keyboard panah tombol untuk pindah ke “Mini Windows Xp” pilihan dan kemudian tekan “ENTER”

      HirrensBootCD-opsi

      Langkah 4: Mengembalikan file registri yang rusak dari Windows folder Restore.

      1. Ketika “Mini Windows XP” dimuat, buka Windows explorer dan menemukan “C: \ System Volume Information” folder.

      sistem volume informasi

      2. Buka “System Volume Information” dan di dalamnya Anda harus menemukan folder lain dengan nama seperti ini:

      mis. “_Restore {1GSJJKxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx …)”. *

      * Bagian kedua dari nama folder ini adalah acak

      gambar

      3. Buka folder acak misalnya “_Restore {1GSJJKxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx …)”, untuk melihat isinya.

      Sekarang Anda harus melihat beberapa folder dengan nama RPxx (misalnya RP2, RP3, dll)

      gambar

      4. Cari “RPxx” folder dengan tanggal modifikasi terbaru dan membukanya.

      gambar

      5. Inside “RPxx” folder, cari dan buka “snapshot” folder.

      gambar

      6. Sekarang dalam “snapshot” folder, Anda harus melihat file:

      a. _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE

      b. _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM

      gambar

      7. Sekarang tergantung pada file registry yang rusak, lakukan salah satu dari dua tindakan berikut:

      a. Jika “PERANGKAT LUNAK” file registri rusak, maka Anda harus menerima kesalahan ini di windows startup:

      “Windows XP tidak dapat memulai karena berkas berikut hilang atau rusak:

      \ WINDOWS \ SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG \ SOFTWARE ”

      Bagaimana memperbaiki “\ WINDOWS \ SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG \ SOFTWARE” error:

      i. Copy “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE” file “C: \ WINDOWS | SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG” folder dan

      ii. Ubah nama “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE” file “SOFTWARE” *

      Pemberitahuan *: Jika “PERANGKAT LUNAK” file ada di “C: \ WINDOWS | SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG” folder Anda harus menghapus atau memindahkannya di lokasi lain.

      OR

      a. Jika “SISTEM” file registri rusak, maka Anda harus menerima kesalahan ini di windows startup:

      “Windows XP tidak dapat memulai karena berkas berikut hilang atau rusak:

      \ WINDOWS \ SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG \ SYSTEM ”

      Bagaimana memperbaiki “\ WINDOWS \ SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG \ SYSTEM” error:

      i. Copy “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM” file “C: \ WINDOWS | SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG” folder dan

      ii. Ubah nama “_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM” file “SISTEM” *

      Pemberitahuan *: Jika “SISTEM” file ada di “C: \ WINDOWS | SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG” folder Anda harus menghapus atau memindahkannya di lokasi lain.

      Langkah 5. Boot ke Windows

      Setelah melakukan copy dan rename tindakan, mengambil CDROM keluar dari DRIVE CD dan reboot komputer Anda.

      Sekarang, komputer Anda biasanya harus boot Windows.

      Perhatian: Jika Anda tidak dapat menemukan file di dalam “System Volume Information” folder, itu berarti bahwa System Restore fitur dinonaktifkan di komputer bermasalah. Jika ini terjadi, maka Anda harus mencoba untuk menyalin “PERANGKAT LUNAK” atau “SISTEM” file registry dari dalam “C: WINDOWS \ PERBAIKAN \” folder ke “C: \ WINDOWS | SYSTEM32 \ CONFIG” folder.

      Prosedur ini tidak menjamin pemulihan penuh dari sistem ke keadaan sebelumnya, namun Anda harus dapat memulihkan data Anda.

      anda bisa mencoba ini mas irfan :

      To resolve this issue, use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the Msvcrt.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:

      Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer’s CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

      NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
      At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
      Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
      Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
      With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
      cd system32
      ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
      CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
      cd \i386
      expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
      exit
      NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.

      NOTE: The retail version of the Msvcrt.dll file is dated 23-Aug-2001. It was included with Windows XP and has the following properties:
