Out of no where today my computer stopped loading Windows and started giving me this message:

File is corrupt of Missing
<Windows root>\\system32\
toskrnl.exe
Please reinstall the above file.


How do I go about doing this... I have my XP disk sitting right here. If someone could walkme through installing the file it would be great

I would just reformat but there is irreplacable stuff on the HD so I dont want to lose it.

please help.

If I install anbother copy of Winxp on the same partition as the corrupt one will I be able to access the same data? If I could get some of the stuff off the HD and onto my Ipod i would just reformat

we need a DOS expert here--it is possible that you could insert the XP disk into a working comp and search for that file on the disk--burn it to a floppy and on boot use the repair console and the commands therein (help will bring up a list of possible commands) to add the file to windows C drive...not sure about the exact command though...could also just insert the CD and use the repair function to reinstall all the pertinent drivers.

insert xp disc and select it to boot the optical drive first,it should then acess the win xp install,but if you read it'll say press "r" to enter recovery,should be step by step after that

It will give you that option after a few minutes of loading windows drivers...it'll say Windows has detected a previous installation would you like to repair this or renistall windows. choose repair--it should leave your files unscathed and simply rewrite the drivers etc.

That is different than the repair function--the recovery console is the first option I mentoned--but requires some familiarity with DOS type commands. The Repair function comes after letting the CD spin for awhile and try to load windows...it is automatic.

I can't stand the ASR console...


Just run through the disk like your going to do a normal install, but when it asks you if you want to delete or repair your current install, select repair. Then, the installer will delete every Windows system file, but leave anything else instact, and will then replace all the Windows files. I've used it several times and never had a problem with it.

Plus, it dosn't count as another use of your CD key.
