If you cannot boot you will have to do a repair install of the OS.

You could certainly try copying the file, it may have just been damaged.

You could also use the Recovery Console to expand the file from the installation media.

The Problem solved by removing the /3GB switch. It's not compatible. And windoows was giving all those crazy errors due to that. Thanks for your assistance.
