a) Type the following commands to change the directory to c:\windows\system32\config :

cd windows
cd system32
cd config

ren system system.bak

c) Type exit to leave the recovery console and to restart the computer.

d) Go back into the Recovery Console.

e) Re-enter the commands:

cd \
cd system~1

f) Continue with the steps from the "If you don't get an Access Denied error" branch.
