NTOSKRNL.exe replaced, now Win2k always reboots on startup (even in Safe Mode)
Posted on 2003-10-25
I originally had a Stop error with the NTOSKRNL.exe file missing or corrupted. I was unable to go into the Recovery COnsole due to missing Administrator password (did not match system password). I copied a new NTOSKRNL.exe from another box and copied it onto the broken machine. The computer now boots up, but reboots every time after the final Windows splash screen loader. How can I recover this box?
FYI - this box was originally upgraded from Windows 98 and has been runnign fine for over 1 year.
