    Hi,

    Make another disk from the original download. If you deleted it, then
    redownload the rtm version (provided you have access to it) and reburn it.
    If this is your only system, then do it on a friend's system.

    If you had an RC or beta version, then you are out of luck as they are no
    longer available. All you can do is wipe the machine and load a clean
    install of another OS for which you currently have the media.

    Uh-oh... Hate to bring bad news but you're in trouble. You see, this file
    ('system' is a file without extension in config folder) is critical system
    file since it holds part of HKLM registry hive, namely HKLM\System which
    holds OS configuration data, hardware and services configuration etc.

    Your best bet is to boot from Vista DVD as suggested. If you can't get one,
    there's MSKB article on how to deal with registry corruptions that prevent
    system from booting for Windows XP which I guess you can use for Vista as
    well (but just in case, disclaimer - use at your own risk):

    Actually it could be worse than that. Say, losing 'software' file which
    contains all registry settings and config for installed programs.
