Windows could not start because the following file is missing or currupt:
<Windows root>|system32|ntskrnl.exe.
Please reinstall a copy of the above file
I was able to find a possible solution,( RESOLUTION
Edit your Boot.ini file and change the partition information by performing the following steps: 1. Remove the Read Only and System File attributes from the Boot.ini file by typing the following command at an MS-DOS or OS/2 command line:
Attrib -S -R C:\Boot.ini
2. Edit the Boot.ini file and change the partition number for Windows. In most cases, you need to increase the partition number by one. A typical Windows line in the Boot.ini file looks similar to the following, where x is the partition number and <ntdir> is the name of the folder into which Windows is installed:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(x)\<ntdir>="Windows XP Home" )
but I am having a problem implementing the solution at the dos prompt that I am at ( C:\WINDOWS> ).
Can anyone help me, please?
Thanks !
