Installation issues

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Y29tcHV0ZXIgZml4ZXI=?=, May 26, 2005.

  1. I finally got my download link and cd key email. i tried installing it, and
    it finishes through the first part and then reboots. When it tries to load
    windows x64 to finish the install, i get an error saying "{windows
    root}\system32\ntoskrnl.exe missing or corrupt, re-install the file" i have
    tried using the recovery console to copy it and that works, but it still wont
    boot. i even redownloaded and burned the image. i can still access my
    windows xp 32 bit, and yes i am installing them on separate partitions. what
    is wrong with my 64 bit install?

  2. One of two things:
    1.) you need to copy the 64 bit ntoskrnl.exe to the root directory of the
    32-bit install.
    2.) you need updated storage controller drivers. See some of the other
    threads here for details about how to get and load SATA or RAID drivers.

    Where do you come up with your advise? None of these suggestions have
    anything to do with the problem. Do you get an MVP by the number of post?

  4. In a word, no. And I certainly don't get paid to be here, being abused for
    trying to help people. If you've been following this ng, you'd know that the
    problems with beta storage drivers have caused exactly this behaviour.

  5. i tried copying the 64bit ntoskrnl.exe to the 32 bit install, that caused
    neither to boot. i tried getting sata drivers but when windows tried
    installing them from the floppy it said they were not supported by 64bit
    windows. i will continue looking for 64bit drivers.

  6. You need to get specific 64-bit drivers for _your_ motherboard and SATA
    controller. See www.planetamd64.com for the latest drivers.

  7. i went to planetamd64.com and downloaded the drivers for my sata controller.
    i still have the same problem. I also tried changing the values in my
    boot.ini file, and instead of the ntoskrnl.exe error i got one about hardware
    configuration. In case it has anything to do with it, i have a MSI K8N Neo
    Platinum mobo wth the NForoce 3 250Gb chipset, i have 1 maxtor 80gig IDE HDD
    with winxp home, and am trying to install xp x64 on my Western Digital 74gig
    raptor, which is connected to sata1 on the mobo.
