Question about MSI K8N NEO Platinum Nforce3 Athlon64 250Gb Chipset 800MHz FSB DDR400 Socket 754 ATX Motherboard wit... (MB75MIK8NNEO)
Windows XP pro - 1st boot, floppy, CD, then HD.
Sometimes reboot and would run windows but would lose short cuts fom desk top.
Changed battery as it looked low and put Bios in Safe Mode but now it stops with above message always. Tried putting Windows CD in, it won't start, press return and it reboots and stops at above message. I then tried to reformat HD to load a backup but it will not bootup on Floppy or CD only hard drive
Any ideas? If not can you recommend a replacement MBd that will take my single core CPU AGP card and memory as I believe this board is no longer made.
Hi terry304, your current trouble is within windows not your motherboard. If you want to repair your windows than go to the link below & read the Microsoft page. They have a program that can help repair your window. See the link provided;
(Though you'll do most of the work).
Here are a few replacement boards for your socket 939 CPU & MB;
Personally, I do not buy from EBay when it comes to MB's. The risk is too high. I also run a socket 939.
Good luck Terry!
Thank you for using fixya.

Tips for a great answer:
Below is a listing of the full error message that may be related to this error.
Windows NT could not start because the below file is missing or corrupt:
This issue has also been known to be caused by a short in the ground wire in the keyboard cable. Make sure this is not the cause of your error by replacing the keyboard with a different keyboard or just disconnecting the keyboard from the computer.
Before trying any of the below recommendations it's recommend that you load the last known good configuration.
Corrupt boot.ini file
This issue is often caused when the boot.ini is missing or improperly configured. This issue often arises after a user has recently added or removed an operating system on the computer or added or removed hard disk drives in the computer.
Make sure the line pointing to the operating system and its drive and partition is properly configured in the [boot loader] and [operating systems] section.
Missing boot.ini file
Microsoft Windows XP users:
If the boot.ini is severely corrupted or missing a user running Microsoft Windows XP can rebuild the boot.ini to resolve this issue.
Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000 users:
To restore the original boot.ini file in Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 you will need an ERD and follow the below steps. If you do not have an ERD you will be unable to follow these steps.
Missing or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe file
If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps.
Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB
If you are running Microsoft windows NT 4.0 on a partition larger than 7.8GB this issue can occur if the boot files are located outside this limitation. When this error occurs your computer will have the error message as shown below.
OS Loader v4.01
Disk I/O error status=00000001
Windows NT could not start because the below file is missing or corrupt: winnt\system32\Ntoskrnl.exe
Please reinstall a copy of the above file.
If your system partition is larger than 7.8GB you will need to delete the partition and recreate the partition to 7.8GB or less. Additional information about this issue can be found on Microsoft KB Q224526.
Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows
If after trying all of the above steps you are still encountering the same issue it's likely that Windows is severely corrupted and it is recommended you reinstall Windows.
Finally, if during the Windows installation you encounter errors it's likely that your hard disk drive is bad.
