  • Question

  • Hello - I am new to servicing POS Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 2 systems. I am working on a Radiant 1220 it crashed, Error: c:\windows\system32\comfig\system file is missing or corrupt. 

    I know I need to reload it again because there is no backup disk or recovery disk available. I looked inside the system and did not see a hard drive just memory. 

    By reading lots of forums and using google search I need to make a disk or flash drive boolable to reload the system, Just dont know how to make all this happen I need step by step directions please.

    Also there are other POS that are currently working with the same IMG. so what I was thinking is that I could make a IMG from that and use that but not sure how to start.

    Amy help is appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • The file that is corrupted is a registry file. The image has to be completely reloaded. If you have a duplicate system, you could attempt to copy image to a new hard drive and boot.

  • Thanks for the info and timely repose. This system has a UDOC Flash drive, I am guessing that this is were the OS is stored on. Do you have any instructions how to load the Windows XP Embedded OS from a IMG to a flash drive. 

    Once again thank you for your expertise i value your time to respond.
