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,

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.

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.
