Hi hype85

Let's go into Recovery Console and try the following:

Select the installation to log on to (usually number 1), and then press "Enter".

Login to the Administrator account by typing the password for this account, and then press "Enter".

At the recovery console command prompt, type the following command, and then press "Enter":

expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\Windows\system32

If you receive a prompt to overwrite the file, press Y.

Type exit, and press "Enter" at the command prompt.

Reboot. Does Windows load successfully?

Cool! :whistling:

Now we'll need to edit the boot.ini file.

Click "Start" and then "Control Panel". Double click on the "System" icon. Under the "Advanced" tab, in the "Startup and Recovery" section, click on the "Settings" button. Click on the "Edit" button. Copy/Paste the contents of the notepad window to your next reply.

All righty then...I'll need to know more about your machine. Download WinAudit from the link in my signature and run it on your machine...you can transfer both the application and the report by floppy or cd. Save a report in HTML format to the desktop. This will generate 3 files...I will only need the one named "rightframe.html". Send it to me by e-mail (I'll PM you with my address).

Give me a bit to review the report and we'll see if we can get things back in order. :whistling:

Couple of quick questions...

Are you using the USB Network Device?

Do you have the Disk for your machine that contains the drivers?
