Hi servandogutierrez,


If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can generate the error..... To restore this file follow the below steps..............

1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD.
2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password. (usually nothing so press Enter)
5. Type expand X:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 (where 'X' is your CD Drive)
6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file.
7. Type exit to reboot the computer.


Another possibility:
This issue is often caused when the boot.ini is missing or improperly configured.........

Make sure the line pointing to the operating system and it's drive and partition is properly configured in the [boot loader] and [operating systems] section............

Example:

CODE[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP" /fastdetect  


Cheers!
Sebastian
