Hello,
I'm using the xp cd and I'm on the recovery console. I didn't have a admin password and it won't let me proceed to reinstall ntoskrnl.exe. Does this mean format the hard drive and reinstall? Thanks. gedunc

Since you didn't use a password, maybe you can run the repair console and copy the file directly from the Cd.

Better help can be provided if you state the entire error message.

Does it stop and ask you for the password for administrator?

If so, you will need the password. If this is a PC you need files from, you can always buy a new hard drive and install Windows on that. That's pretty much my top recomendation for people that need to re-install the OS, keeps all of your files on the old drive. If you format and re-install over your current setup, you lose your files.
