Suddenly got this error when booting up. Windows XP

1) I've run a repair on the XP installation
2) I've run chkdsk /r
3) I've entered the recovery console using my xp disk, and typed expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32
(But it says there is no floppy disk or cd in the drive)(Does it need a different disk)


Could any suggest anything else I could try? Thanks

Try issuing the map command in recovery console to make sure that your CD drive is located at D:\. If it's not, try the expand X:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ C:\Windows\system32 command again but replacing X:\ with the letter for your drive.

My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)
FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.

If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.
If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.

Found out the cd drive was actually H - so the command then worked. "Now i get please, select the operating system to start:

microsoft windows xp professional or microsoft windows xp professional"

But you can't move or select the other, it just freezes on that screen then reboots after 10secs

Hmmm....

Go back to the Recovery Console and type:

more C:\boot.ini

This will display the contents of the boot.ini file. Post it here please.
