I'm running Windows XP in a VMWare Fusion image on a Mac. Last night something mysterious happened and this morning the machine was unexpectedly powered off. When I brought it up the Mac OS booted fine, but when I launch Windows, I get errors -

winlogon.exe - bad image
shell32.dll is not a valid windows image, restore original ...

lsass.exe - bad image
shell32.dll is not a valid windows image, restore original ...

msgina.dll failed to load
restart

I've tried booting from CD and running chkdsk /r. I've tried restoring backup images of my VMware image. I've tried fixboot. No luck.

Help!

I solved it! I found x:\i386\shell32.dl_ on the install CD. From the recovery console, I was able to expand it, rename the old, replace it with the new, reboot, and I'm back in business. Hope this helps some future frustrated person.
