When you try to start your Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0-based computer, the computer may not start and you may receive the following error message:
This behavior can occur when the permissions to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config folder are changed so the system account does not have Full Control permissions to this folder.
To resolve this behavior, install a parallel copy of Windows NT Server 4.0 and restart to the parallel installation. Grant the system account Full Control permissions to the Winnt/System32/Config folder. Restart to the original installation.
