File ntoskrnl.exe status: 0xc0000098 RRS feed

  • Question

  • SCCM 2012 R2 CU2 Single Primary Site Server

    Trying to deploy Windows Server 2008 R2 to Dell server.

    File ntoskrnl.exe status: 0xc0000098

    Any suggestions on troubleshooting. I think the following action plan for now:

     

    0xc000098 translates to Status_File_Invalid. The volume for a file has been externally altered such that the opened file is no longer valid. Seems like the machine is unable to locate the hard disk. Can you deploy Windows Server 2012 image?

    1. Check the boot options in BIOS and ensure it is correct

    2. Run hard drive diagnostics

    3. Run Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool

    4. Boot into safe mode with command prompt and type dispart to check if HD is being detected.

  • Hi,

    Have you checked drivers you installed on the computer?

    Since you can boot to safe mode successfully, drivers should be in the first place to be verified.

  • Strangely we are able to install Windows Server 2012 R2 image to the same machine.

    However it errors out with Windows Server 2008 R2 Image. We tried different media for 2008 R2. 

    Any suggestions on proceeding with troubleshooting.

    1. First boot laptop/PC using a USB stick or CD with Windows 10 installed. [00:06]
    2. Select your language and click Next. [00:11]
    3. Now type: bcdedit /export c:\bcdbackup and hit Enter. [00:30]
    4. Type the letter Y and hit Enter. [00:51]
    5. When it finishes the repairs type exit and press Enter. [00:55]
    6. Now restart and your error should be fixed. [00:59]
