Please can you help. My Advent PC 3107 has developed the following error.

It will not start up in XP home. After trying to start in safe mode the following error message is returned

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: c:\windows\system\config\system

It advises me to start up using the Advent OEM recovery disc. When after setting the cd rom to be the boot drive in the BIOS and restarting with the recovery disc in the CD drive, I get the one of the following

either a text that says CD ROM read error or

a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

I have put the CD rom drive into another PC and it works fine.

Please could you give me guidance on how to proceed next

Please note that the PC was only supplied with 2 OEM recovery discs; Windows XP home system discs were not supplied

The PC specs are as follows:

CPU Intel Pentium 4 1.8GHz
BIOS PheonixBIOS. To enter press F2 key.
Motherboard Intel D845HV
Memory 512MB PC133 SDRAM
Hard Drive 40GB Maxtor 4D040H2
CD Drive 4x 4x 24x Toshiba combi SD-R1002 DVD/CD-R/RW
