    HELP - can't boot after installing new CPU... NTKRNLPA.EXE STATUS

    I upgraded my computer with a faster CPU - AMD athalon 64 3700+.
    when I try to boot Vista Business, it stops with the error :
    ntkrnlpa.exe status 0cx0000211

    It suggests me to put my Installation disk... and repair the installation...
    the only problem is that all the copies of Vista that I have are upgrades...
    and they don't boot....

    any ideas?
    Thanks
    Robert

    Yes, a Vista Business DVD has a Repair option, whether it be Upgrade or
    Full (If it is the standard off-the-shelf non-OEM one, from Microsoft). You
    have to boot from DVD to use it. It is bootable. See:

    How to automatically repair Windows Vista using Startup Repair

    Too, some OEM disks have a repair option, as well.
