Attention: Software hive is missing.

ATTENTION: Software hive is not loaded.

OK from the reatogo desktop open a command prompt and type the following command

chkdsk c: /r

Once it has completed try a normal boot

after CHKDSK, rebooted with XP CD and did a repair of existing XP, everything is back to normal.
