I have a friend of mine calling who keeps calling me asking him what to do about this error message:
Windows NT won't start because <winnt root>\System32\Ntoskrnl.exe is missing or corrupt
He tells me that it occurred after installing the latest update for adobe acrobat. It's Windows 2000 on an NTFS partition, but he only has the Win2K upgrade CD in his possession. I've given him directions for making a bootdisks with another Win2000 laptop he has.
I'm wondering what I should do next?
Should I copy over a known good file from a different machine (will that work) or what?
could it be a bad boot.ini file?
Any guidance would be appreciated...
