    Default Bad error message


    When I was installing a new graphics card and then rebooted. I received a missing/corrupt error: \Windows\System32\Config\System. It says install disk into CD-ROM the original disk and hit "r".

    Operating system XP, I am able to access F2,F8 and F12. But it does not help, I put the original XP disk in and it does not even load. I pulled out the new graphics card. And hooked up the monitor to the intergrated card. Tried everything again, no good. I have no access to anything basically and the same error pops up everytime I reboot.

    Anybody have step by step help or am I just F_____.
