Trying to get data off a bad .vhd

    I'm having a similar problem and I really need to recover the data on the .vhd.

    When I try to start the image in the normal way through VirtualPC, I get this message:

    "Windows could not start becuaset he following file is missing or corrupt:
    \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
    You can attempt to repair the file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."

    I don't have the original setup CD, so that option is out.

    I tried WinImage, and it appeared to open the .vhd and show me the top level folders, but if I tried to browse the folders or copy a folder, WinImage crashes and says:
    "WinImage application file has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jasmine
