When you start your Windows NT 4.0-based computer, you may receive the following error message on a blue screen:
STOP: 0x00000074 (0x00000005, 0x00000003, 0x00000003, 0xC000000D) BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO
This issue can occur if the Read-Only attribute has been set on a registry file.
To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method:
Windows NT Is Installed on a File Allocation Table (FAT) Volume
Windows NT Is Installed on a Windows NT File System (NTFS) Volume
The registry files are opened by the operating system very early in the boot process, and the operating system requires full control over the registry files to function as designed.
