A mate just dropped his PC into me as following just pulling the plug to shut down his PC,(idiot,I know),he now gets the error:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:


You can attempt to repair this file by stating windows setup using the original setup CD ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

Is this the best/easiest solution to the problem?

Well you could do a repair click here but afterwards you would need to load Windows updates.
