Default Blue Screen of Death

Hey there, I recently screwed something up on my machine, moving a required file to another place. I know exactly where it was, and exactly where the file needs to go, however I get the windows blue screen of death upon boot. Using another computer, i have made the following simple batch file to deal with it, although I need to get this batch file onto my laptop along with the required file.

Batch file:
Quote:
copy "vistablackwave.bootskin" "C:\Documents and Settings\Josh\Desktop\vistablackwave.bootskin"
pause
I know nothing about how a computer works on boot, can someone please help me run this file with the .bootskin?

Thanks a lot

With Windows XP, you could just boot into the CD, enter recovery console and there's your command line interface to copy the file back to the original directory.
