windows server 2008 won't start ntoskrnl.exe

The system lost power and crashed during a windows update. I am now getting the following error. I have the installation disk but it does not repair the computer.



The error deals with corruption of the boot sector, bcdedit/bootrec might need to be used to set the bootrec.

The updates adjust bootup to apply the changes.

Do you have backups or better a redundant system that performs those tasks?

Before you try fixing the boot sector (good suggestion above) .. try pulling all your memory and add some known good memory. I have seen this error thrown because of this before. This is a quick test then on to arnold's suggestion.



I tried the repaid through the command prompt. it didn't work. I am trying to restore but I was hoping to not loose any of the info. The memory is fine , I was able to reinstall on a new disk to test the system.
thanks



what does the system do?
Are you able to boot the system either with a linux/windows PE where you have network access as well as access to the underlying data?

You might want to run sfc offline to see whether it will restore, restore points?

....



i was not able to boot . it would show options to start windows but non of them worked. i ended up restoring windows from an older backup. took the data drive out. replace with blank. I then put in the old data drive after the restore was done.
thanks
