Open the boot.ini file again and delete the contents of the notepad window.

Copy the red text below, paste it into the boot.ini file window, click "File" on the toolbar, and click on "Save". This will eliminate the boot prompt at startup.

How is the machine running? Have you been able to recover all your files?

The machine has been running perfectly so far. I've been able to recover almost the application data save one app which I can't get to function. But that is a small matter I can deal with on my own. I want to thank you for all the help resolving this problem you really saved me alot of time!

Best Regards,

David

My pleasure, David... :whistling:

Once you are sure you have everything you need from the Windows 2000 folder, you can simply delete it. If you need further assistance or run into problems, give me a shout!
