    I would think the actual error message would be on the BSD itself.
    I believe the second line of the message you are seeing is the reference to the OS being booted.

    just when I thought everything was ok and SP1 fixed a few weird problems I got this error (see attachment). Also all *.txt and *.doc files look just like the showdesktop icon on the image, no application associated with them to open them. Any ideas as to why this is happening? All I did was install office XP on saturday...I did got a couple of disk checks at startup. It said tht one of my drives need to be checked for consistency....

    What commands do I need to enter to use the recovery console and repair the registry?

    Please help me out!

    I take it then that you installed SP1 on a well used system then? :?:

    If so I hope that you had everything backed up as SP1 should only be installed on clean installations IMO as the more clutter you have the greater the chance of a system wipe. I've had so many here lately like that and the chances of saving info is very hard as a lot gets corrupted. :(

    my friend I have made so many clean installations of XP , that I can't remember how many i have made!

    here we go again.

    1.I do a clean install of XP on a primary partition.
    2.Update windows and drivers.
    3.install office xp and update it.
    4.everything is great until one day XP checks the HDdrive for consitency at startup.
    5. Then one day system registry is corrupted and I get this message:

    "One of the files containing the sustem's registrydata had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. the recovery was succesful."

    6.The show desktop icon and all the *.txt and *.doc files are then not associated with any application. and many other programs won't open correctly and the system starts to get all kinds of errors when running applications.
    7. I get frustrated and reinstall. And the process starts all over again.

    Man can someone help me out with this I need help. I have to reinstall XP every 15 days or so.

    I have tried changing jumper settings on the HDD and the other IDE drives and also Flashed the BIOS. Please spend some time helping me out with this. I am sure there is a hardware problem causing this. What do you think?

    If you think it is a hardware problem, how about some hardware info? What ide devices do you have hooked to what channels? Master/slave config? Bios and Windows settings for ide.

    ok, I have on IDE1 the HDD as master a maxtor 40gig 5400 rpm. and on IDE2 I have DVD master and cd-rw as slave. The mobo is a biostar mv7kd latest award bios. not sure what version it was but it was the latest available from the manufacturer's website. Oh it has a VIA chipset and I installed 4.41 all in one driver. Not sure of what you mean about windows settings for IDE...?....thanks for your reply.!!!

    Attached is an example of Windows settings for ide. In your bios settings, is the hard drive selected as the first boot device? I have on rare occasions seen a system go haywire with the ide when cd-rom is the first boot device and is rebooted with a cd in the drive. Is S.M.A.R.T. enabled in the bios? Does auto-detect set the correct parameters for your drive in the bios? Is plug-and-play os selected?

    ide1 looks exaclty like yours

    ide2 different,

    current transfer mode multiword dma mode 2

    HDD is set to be first boot device on BIOS
    S.M.A.R.T. is not supported or I couldn't find it. where is it supposed to be.
    autodetect works well all cd-r and hdd are detected
    Plug & Play selected

    if you are reinstalling that many times i'd run scandisk and do a complete check on the hard drive. also make sure your have an up to date virus scanner. Possible that one of your files on your of your floppy diks or whatever you are saving your office info has a virus on it destroying files at random.
