ntoskrnl.exe missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • My whs box states that the ntoskrnl.exe is missing and the whs just keeps rebooting.  But the disk I have for whs is the install disk and it all ways wants to reinstall the whs os and overwright everything.  How do I get the missing file fixed?

  • Usually that sort of error is caused by a disk problem. You can try booting from e.g. a Vista installation disk, going into the repair console, and running chkdsk /r on your server's C: drive.

    Failing that, server reinstallation is your other option. This FAQ gives an overview of the process which, if performed properly, is not destructive of your data.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
