Hello anyone,

I have a computer that boots to "windows 98" screen, nothing else happens. I only have a windows 2000 CD and tried to boot from CD but the error says (CDBOOT: Coundn't find NTLDR) then goes to windows 98 logo on screen and clicking from PC.

What do I do to setup windows 2000?

Thanks for any help,

John :whistling:

Hi John
To get your 98 working again.
Start the computer and hold down the Ctrl key untill you get a sceen with options.
Choose safe mode with command prompt.
What I put in blue is what you type what i put inred is what you press
at the prompt type scanreg /restore enter
There is a space between scanreg and /.
This should give you a list of when the computer started last time,
A properly working registry has the word "Started" next to the date.

As for the 2000 is this a legit cd or a copy from a friend?
Cheers
Peterm

Hi & Thanks,

I'll give it a try. The 2000 is professional that I bought and burned a copy, but I cannot find my original. I've always used this copy and kept the original in a safe :whistling: place. Like my music CD. I can only find some of them. Thought I had a good system, but I moved too much in the last 6 years.

Thanks again,
John
