PCI.sys missing or corrupted Server R2 2012

After the Windows updates, you now receive an error during startup which States PCI.sys missing or corrupted.  I tried to replace the file with a new copy pci.sys, ran chkdsk c:/r, and nothing seems to work.

I have the impression that the registry is to blame, but don't know where to start

This issue is beyond the scope of this site (for consumers) and to be sure, you get the best (and fastest) reply, we have to ask either on Technet (for IT Pro) or MSDN (for developers)

  • system32\DRIVERS\pci.sys missing or corrupt file error but windows xp is already preloaded on computer when purchased

    missing or corrupt file error system32\DRIVERS\pci.sys keeps appearing. I had a problem with google chrome and then stop everything. This error appeared. It tells me to use the cr rom boot but xp was already loaded on the sony vaio that we bought a few years ago. I don't know what to do next because I don't want to lose the pictures and music, we have on the hard drive. Any help would be appreciated

    If your data is not backed up, then at some point that the data will be lost.

    Your Sony are delivered with a hidden restore partition or recovery disks, but I do not think that the Sony recovery allows to repair an installation of win, only pure install.

    You must remove the drive and it slave on another PC in order to retrieve the data, or take it to a decent repair shop for them to do it for you

  • How can I fix the pci.sys if corruption do not have XP installation disc

    I bought a laptop in 2006 that had Windows XP installed in it.  Yesterday, I installed SP3 for Windows XP update.  I noticed that he hung up during installation.

    Hello panjok2,

    Sometimes recovery CD are dependent on the architecture of a hard drive.  If it is different from the original disc, then we have problems.

    In this case, the best thing you could do is contact HP and see if this is the case.  If it is not why this happens, they should be able to help you as well because they are the ultimate authority on their recovery process.

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Best regards
