There is no F8 repair option in NT.

The only way ist to boot from a NT-CD and chose the "R" option in setup to get NT repaired.

But be carefull, if the system had been running for some time don't let the repair option exchange the registry or all changes and software installations are lost.

First just try to repair the boot environment, if this fails, you could use the option to replace the system files, but you have to reinstall the service pack after this.

When prompted by the Windows NT installation media, press the F6 key to load the mass storage driver (SCSI driver) from floppy.
