NT 4 booting problem

The error message is "Stop: C0000221 {bad Image checksum), the image ntvdm.exe is probably corrupt"

I don't have the boot disks.

How can I boot it up and get the ntvdm replaced?

Thanks,

Do you know if the boot partition is FAT or NTFS?

As your boot partition is NTFS you might want to take a look at BartPE from http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ which can be built from an XP CD.  This isn't something I have tried but have used BartPE to access none booting Server 2003 servers.

BartPE will not work on NT 4.

My system is NT 4 SP5.

The last time I was supporting NT4 I used NTFSforDOS which I think was a download from Sysinternals.  However it seems since Sysinternals was purchased by Microsoft this is no longer available for download.  It might be worth a trawl through say a google search to see if you can locate a copy.  You will need the professional version however.

Finally I put the hrd drive to another computer as slace drive. I get the origial ntvdm.exe file with the same version from other source. I replaced the corrupt file with the right one.

Boot. All right!

Thank Compaq_Engineer for the suggestion.
