How to Create Bootable Flash Drive

A friend gave me her HP Mini (1212NR) that seems to have a corrupted system32/config file. She doesn't have the install CD that came with it. I'm wondering if chkdsk can fix this without having to do a clean install. How do I create a bootable flash drive that will allow me to run chkdsk? Thanks so much.
