Problem with System Recover

Im having troubles with doing a system recover. Ive done it in the past and have ha no problem. I wanted to clean out my hard drive today, and i got this error before the recover even started. The error was:

Stop: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive
\system\system32\config\security
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable

Thanks in advance.

Re: Problem with System Recover

I do not have a Windows Disk. It did not come with my HP. Are there any other methods?
