MISSING OSKERNEL.EXE

You mean that, you have dual boot for your machine, one for WIN95 and another one for NTW, right ? Once, you've remove your e drive (where the NT OS stored), it will keep on looking for those NT essential boot up files where it were initially store. I'm not too understand your question. If you have another NTW installed into another drive/folder then you properly need to create a NT boot disk and change the boot.ini file from your c drive then. Or you can use this 'ntfsdos.exe' command to do the boot.ini changes as well. I hope this can help you. Let me know, if you have any question

the answer is in the boot.ini. You have removed one of the drives and changed where the NT lives. Not sure where but look it up on technet.

The line in boot.ini looks something like this:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional"

Good luck

Partition Magic may get your e: drive back, but you might need to reinstall NT after making a new e: drive. A data recovery tool like Lost & Found might do even better.

To just get rid of the message and run 95 only, boot with a Win95 floppy andSYS C:; this will remove the NT boot sector code that references Boot.ini

Third alternative, install NT anywhere; That will add lines to Boot.ini for that install. Edit Boot.ini so that this line is your NT default.
