rainer79, i solved the problem, my english isn't very good so i explain it as much possible as i can..

unplug your hard disk and plug it into a computer which has the same OS with yours (you must set the hard disk jumper to the slave mode), then when you start the computer, OS will check and repair the corrupted files.Tthen when you plug the hard disk to your PC everythings gonna be OK, you'll see

I have the same situation. It was caused when a fresh install of Windows has been in place for longer than 30 days without being authorized (or probably, when a current authorized Windows installation loses the file that indicates it is authorized).

In other words, Windows is locking you out because it thinks it is an illegal copy. Apparently Microsoft puts something into the disk booting software to prevent booting or reinstall of Windows (which would allow you to bypass the Authorization process by reinstalling every 30 days).

I assume a complete reformat of your drive is the only way to fix this, aside from completing the authorization process. I came upon this message looking for a workaround to the above situation myself. I have a install of windows I did to test a motherboard. After correcting the motherboard date, I got the authorization notice. I have a copy of Windows XP on order for this machine, but I used an already licensed CD to install it, just to see if the motherboard would work. I wanted to wait until I received my additional copy to authorize, but the changed date activated the Windows lockout. Now I'll have to wait until fresh copy arrives before continuing to work on the machine.

Unless there is some extraordinary coincidence, this is the origen of your problem. I don't know of a solution, other than authorizing the copy of Windows.

I posted that I got this error from trying to repair a Windows install that had exceeded the authorization period. I was trying to boot from the CD I had installed the Windows with the day before, so I assumed the CD was fine.

However, I sprayed off the CD with Windex and wiped it clean, and the repair is proceeding normally. It was simply an unlikely coincidence.

Sorry for the misdirection.

It seemed that i had put the floppy IDE cable upside down, so that the floppy led didnt turn off after post.
I put the floppy drive ide cable in correct, and the problem was solved.
