This message is displayed when I try to start windows normally:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt :
Please re-install a copy of the above file."
I don't have my installation software but do have a copy of ntoskrnl.exe. The recovery console won't allow me to copy it from a cd-r or usb drive.
I just used the command "SET" to allow for removable media, but every time I change directory away from C: to D: (cd drive), or E: (usb drive), it defaults back to C: again.
