Open a administrative command prompt, type:
Code:
tree C:\Windows\Winsxs /F /A > C:\Users\Public\Desktop\winsxs.txt
List of every single core system file right there.

What do you mean by "core files"? What's exactly what need to do?

You can find something by looking at the system32 directory of a fresh Windows install. Most DLLs there will be part of the kernel.

I am sorry, I was kind of desperate and didn't express myself clearly. I have few missing system files so I am getting bsod every time I try to load windows. One of those files was pagerfile.sys but I can't remember another one.
I know its kind of stupid but I can't see any other option right now but just to compare list of required files with mine. (I can access all my files with Ubuntu)
I already tried system recovery, but no results. fsc /scannow is not working either.

I do believe pagefile.sys is unique to each computer so just copying one from another PC likely won't get you anywhere. Have you tried safe mode?

It was probably a typo but just for clarification it's sfc /scannow. Also, the Forum tutorial suggests running the system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt and if problems are found to run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It might also be possible to extract the files you need from a Windows 7 installation DVD. But the process is kinda long. It might actually be faster (and easier) to do a repair install which should preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers etc.
