Hello and welcome to GeeksToGo, Lets see what we have here and hopefully I can help you out.
i got a 2nd hand dell inspiron that had windows 2000 on it, no boot disk, no original disks to recover from etc. i went to boot and was told that my /system32/ntoskrnl.exe file was corrupt. is there an easy fix .. a download somewhere?
What is the exact model of your computer
If you have a friend with win 2000 install CD we can fix this. That is why I need to know your model, so I can check for driver downloads, because with out drivers a new copy of windows will not help.
Otherwise a purchase of Windows is in the near future.
Ill be back and we will work further on from your next reply...
