You are probably looking at step 6 and beyond from the link in post 16, which also has options if windows does not show the repair option

Check Disk does hang, even shows lower % - probably a make you feel good feature :whistling:

Leave it for a good while as any reboot will just set it to the start of check disk

Unfortunately not, am wondering why it said the parameters were wrong

possibly worth trying again to check it is

Expand(space)d:\i386\kernel32.dl_ dl with the underscore_ not dll

Hi girryman...

I don't think replacing the kernel32.dll is going to resolve your problem. That being said, I do think there is a very good possibility that we can run a repair install on the machine. It will have to be done differently than the guides suggest, but I've done a number of these successfully.

We'll have to go a little further into the Setup than you did last time to find out for sure, but the setup can be canceled if the options I'm looking for aren't there.

Would you like to give it a go?
