I have read a lot about this issue but haven't found someone with a solution for a similar problem as mine. I'm losing hope of ever fixing this so I really hope someone here can help me out. Here's my situation:
I'm trying to install Windows 7 from a USB stick on a new HD for my computer and I'm having some issues. I prepared my USB with the USB DVD tool from Microsoft. Everything went fine during the installation until the install rebooted my computer. The installation didn't continue and I got the error that the "kernel is missing or corrupt". I tried a repair with that same USB stick but it said it couldn't repair my computer. Then I tried the memorycheck option from the repair screen and guess what.. after it was done with the check it continued the installation! Once the installation was done and I had a working Windows I rebooted my computer and I got the same error again. I tried a repair install which gave me an error message during the installation.
