    Boot up problems: ntoskrnl.exe - error 0xc0000098

    Hi guys,
    Im having problems booting up my pc. It displays the image seen in this imgur album:

    (2 pictures, also I cant get the link to be clickable, Sorry).
    It tells me about ntoskrnl.exe and error code 0xc0000098.

    As mentioned in the imgur album, I managed to get into the booting settings by pressing f10. When I restarted the pc and pressed f10 for the third (maybe) time, it starter preparing a bios swap, as seen in the second Picture. Maybe I was just pressing a different button accidentally, but I'm not pressing anything Right now.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Also, I read from a lot of places that booting from the Windows CD can Help, but I only have a Win7 CD and don't know the consequences of using this CD.

    This sounds ominous. Kyhi on this forum posted a rescue disk you can try but you need access to a working PC to create the disk - see Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk

    You could also install Macrium Reflect Free, create a rescue disk then boot from the disk to try to repair your PC.

    You can also obtain a Windows 10 ISO for repair (don't use your Windows 7 disk) - see or use the Media Creation Tool at

    If the above repairs fail, you will need to reinstall Windows
