I recently loaded McAfee Anti Virus Software and removed all Nortons in the add/Remove panel and got the blue screen and it it displays the following message:
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 do not have any of the factory re boot disks.

I tried to reboot by hitting the f8 key, got to the screen and tried various restarts and no luck all comes back to the same message.

Any ideas??

Hello Rickel

Welcome to FPCH

Have a read of this from Microsoft especially Method 1 seeing as you don't have the disk.

Error message&#58; &#34;Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem&#34; (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314477&Product=winxp)

This is not useful as I cannot get into SAFE MODE.

Any other options?

Get an XP disk.

Get the XP recovery console ISO here and boot from that.
