The Blue Screen of Hive Death

This is photograph of the PC that won't boot. The message says:"Stop: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log oralternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.Beginning dump of physical memory Physical memory dump complete Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance"There isn't much time to read this message which is why I took a picture of it. Within a second or two of this flashing on the screen, the message disappears and the computer attempts to restart itself. So, I Googled the error message which led to a Microsoft knowledge-base entry(seen in the next image)
