2.   A message will appear prompting you to press R to Repair Windows by using Recovery Console, press R

3.   Choose the installation to log on to then press Enter. (it’s typically number 1)

4.   Sign in to the Administrator account

5.   Type the following at the recovery console command prompt:

  • Uni-Processor systems:expand <cd-drive>:i386ntoskrnl.ex_ <hd-drive>:Windowssystem32ntoskrnl.exe
  • Multi-Processor systems:expand <cd-drive>:i386ntkrnlmp.ex_ <hd-drive>:Windowssystem32ntoskrnl.exe
