    Have just done the XP1 upgrade on my XP Pro and now have the error report NT Kernel System has changed error c:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

    Its only displayed at boot up and the PC seems to be running OK, what does it mean and can it be cured ?

    Thanks

    If you have been messing around changing the boot screen put the original back. That should get rid of the error message.

    Have not touched

    Not sure what XPBoot is but not convinced I have it and have not touched anything on the boot screen or welcome screen. Everything is the same except the installation of XP SP1.

    Any other ideas ?

    with SP1, you can not mess with your boot screens. after you have SP1 installed you can not put in a boot screen or replace the ntoskrnl.exe the system will not boot. you can find the default ntoskrnl.exe on themexp.org replace it and you will be fine

    Try checking your boot.ini for anything relating to it. Right click my computer\properties\advanced\startup & recovery\settings\edit. If you are not sure copy & paste it here.
