I'm am trying to get to the hard drive on a PC that is having the following
error - I know the PC needs to be formatted, but I'd like to get my files
off before I do that.

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt"

windows\system32\config\system

I have tried to startup in safe mode, and several other options but it
continues to come up with this error...

:-)
