Rebooting from Recovery Console

By Karen_Z ·
I got the registry file failure in the system root and I've been reading all about it on MS support. My question is is the Recovery Console procedure difficult? I'm fairly computer literate but don't have as much experience with manipulating OS. I've never done this before so should I tackle it or leave it to a more seasoned pro? Thanks!

If you have the administrator password, then you should have no problems with Recovery Console.

Okay, after vacation, I finally tackeled the job. Things went well except the copying & replacing of the windows\system32\config\system file. All the other did okay. Is now the time to just do a clean install or is there another way to get that 'system' file back in? (repeating the steps from MS has not worked!)

Thanks!
