Recently I'm getting the following message on bootup:
STOP: c0000218 [registry file failure]
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\system\ststem32config\security or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt,absent or not writable
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory complete
Contact system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.
Then, if I'm lucky, it proceeds to:
Check file system on C: Type of file system is FAT 32
1 drive needs to be checked for consistency.
Windows will now check the dis
Volume serial numbers 07DO-OAOA
Windows is now verifying files and folders
This process often takes 30 minutes. Is it time to get
new system. I'm thinking IMAC desktop.
