ntoskrnl.exe missing or corrupt HELP!
Posted on 2004-03-25
Problem: Windows won't start, get message that says " ... ntoskrnl.exe is missing or corrup". So, boot the computer off of my Win2000 CD, select the repair option, and here's where things go bad: The repair choice gives me two options (1) Use the Recovery Console and (2) Use an Emergency Repair Disk. Both are dead-ends for me. (1) I don't know how to use the Recovery Console, and it only accepts about 18 commands and (2) I don't have an ERD (floppy) and when I ask it so find it on disk it just gives me the same ol' screen telling me I need an ERD.
So, what do I do from here? I don't want to lose the 8 grand worth of software on my system. And yeah, I've spent two days reading stuff about this on the 'net including stuff here ... I'm still stuck :(
Thanks in advance,
