Everytime i boot my comp i get the same things happening. I let windows load and get a BSOD just b4 i get to my account logon. The BSOD states:

STOP: c0000218 (Registry File Failure)
Registry cannot load hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\Software
or its log or alternate.
Corrupt, absent, or not writable.

Ive tried to work around it by using my Windows XP Home SP2 disk and booting from that but then i get stuck in the loading process of the disk saying that:

aic78xx.sys is corrupt press any key to continue

I press the key to continue and then told to press any key to restart. Is there another way around this or should I just throw in the towel?!

AIC78XX.SYS is an Adaptec Storage Driver. Shut down & reseat the card if it's a card. Reseat the hdd cables. If it's on board, go to bios and load default.

If you pc has RAID, you'll need a RAID driver floppy during setup.
