have a W2012 r2 physical server that is not booting and has the kernel error: oxc0000185

so I went through the steps to replace the kernel with an ISO of W2012 r2 on a usb drive.  

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/recovering-windows-server-2012-r2-boot-loop-roel-gijtenbeek

located an ntoskrnl (but no file path listed) because I was going to use a previous version of it.  

so I still did a rename of it to ntoskrnl *.org

but now I cant replace it with a previous one because I saw no windows\winsxs\...path

May be silly but can I just copy a ntoskrnl.exe file from another server? or from the W2012 ISO disk?  or willl that not work

and if not, what are my options to get his server back up and running in production?
thank you
