Ntoskrnl.exe missing??


S

Hi,

I have a SCSI disk installed on a Adaptec AIC-7890
controller and a tape backup on a Adaptec 2940
controller...I also installed a IDE hard drive and
mirrored it using Disk management. It is also Dynamic
disk, the IDe mirror drive is I believe.

Now,it was working fine until yesterday after I rebooted
after installiung a Visioneer Strobe XP 549 scanner. Then
I get a ntldr missing error..I created a boot disk with a
boot.ini consisting of the following:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Winnt

[operating sytems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft
Windows 2000 Server" /fastdetect

When I do this I get the NToskrnl.exe missing error

I cannot do a Repair from the Win2k CD as it tells me it
cannot find a windows Installation.

Do I have the Boot.ini set up correctly? If I have 2 SCSI
controllers, do I need it configured differently or do I
need a specific SCSI driver in the boot.ini?

Does the dynamic disk on the mirror drive have to do
anything with the fact that I have this problem?

I really need help here!

Thanks!

The repair is failing because the disk is dynamic. Your boot.ini appears
correct however you can make certain from recovery console. Boot to
recovery console and type "map arc". You might also want to run chkdsk
/p and verify that ntoskrnl.exe is actually there.
