    Hello All

    I am getting a nasty ntoskrnl error on a windows XP Pro Laptop while trying to boot up.

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

    <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

    please re-install a copy of the above file

    - I have replaced the ntoskrnl, modified the boot.ini and also tried the fixboot in repair console...

    3 strikes and I'm out of ideas right now

    oh I also tried the last known good configuration boot.

    If I install on top of the current windows will I overwrite all the documents and profiles already set up?

    Is there a way to get it to boot up??

    Thanks in Advance
