View Full Version : system.ini error

01-08-2001, 09:00 AM
When booting, Win 95, the procedure halts and advises that a file referred to in the system.ini file is damaged. The file identified is win\system\VMM32\NTKERN.VXD There is not a copy of this on the Win 95 disk and I can't even find the reference to this file in the system.ini file to rem it out.
I can't run scandisk because I get the message that the disk is not formatted or a disk utility has locked it. I can't identify any disk utility running and the drive is obviously formatted as I'm working to and from it as my boot drive.

Hi Steve, the ntkern.vxd problem is a common in Win 95, especially if you had a pre-installed version, and a different version CD which you have used, alternatively it can occur if you load the USB supplement.

One cure is to uninstall the USB supplement, but to see a full discussion of the problem have a look at this MS Knowledge Base:


Good luck.
