No Boot - \system32\ntoskrnl.exe missing or currupt error

  1. Hello,

    I have a compaq Presario laptop, It was working good & suddenly it started showing error

    PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable
    PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM.

    This keep going on in a loop

    When i try to boot from XP professional CD & go to the repair Option to do "bootcfg /rebuild" as suggested in one of the posts on this forum, it says 'operation cannot be completed as drive not found'.

    Then we get error msg for 'ntoskrnl.exe' missing or currupt. I tried using the copy cammand but somehow the system shuts down automatically on the repair console before i can type the entire command and execute it.

    Whatever help to resolve this issue is highly appreciated.
