Hi, my Windows Vista fails to start today. It only has a black screen which reads: 1. Insert your installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click next. 3. Click repair your computer. file:\windows\system32\config\system status: 0xc00000e9 info: windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt I inserted the disc and restart my PC, but the same text then appeared again. I pressed Enter and "Windows Boot Manager" showed up and told me to choose an operating system to start. I chose Vista and several choices appeared: Safe Mode; Safe Mode with Networking; Safe Mode with Command Prompt; Last Known Good Configuration (advanced); Start Windows Normally I tried all of them progressively, but they didn't work. The text "insert your installation disc and restart your computer" appeared again and that was all. Since then, I have read many advices and instructions on the Internet. They all say to insert the disc, choose a language and click to repair to PC. But there is no "language selection" on my screen. What do I do wrong? Why can't I get further than to the first step? Any ideas how to fix the problem? Thank you for your time!
