"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

Recommended Posts

Problem:

 

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

 

<Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.

 

Please re-install a copy of the above file"

 

Solution:

 

Insert the Windows XP CD, reboot computer with it in, choose option R for recovery console

 

then

 

copy d:\I386\Driver.cab c:\system32\ntoskrnl.exe /v

 

 

where d: is the drive letter of your cdrom drive

 

if using a Swedish OS (or non-english) try leaving the /v out

 

once copied, type Exit to exit

 

and remove the cd.

Thank you for the help.

Just, in my case i had to modifed the command.

 

This

copy d:\I386\Driver.cab c:\system32\ntoskrnl.exe /v

 

For

copy d:\I386\Driver.cab c:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe /v

 

Maybe in the computer c:\windows was not added in the PATH.

you must replace same version of ntoskrnl thats contained in the oS in which it has to be replaced. when you look at the file verison of ntoskrnl, it also shows the HAL.dll file.
