That's unfortunate. I wanted to see if erunt could be used to possibly overwrtie the 2nd instance registry by using a back up of the first instance. Unfortunately, you would need to at least boot to safe mode using the first instance before erunt could attempt a backup.

Other than you trying the recovery console again, I am out of ideas.

I will defer this thread to the higher ups and hopefully they can find a solution for you.

Sorry again for not being able to do more.

Howdy:

Go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management..

Now, click on "Disk Management" and either "Cut and paste what you see in the right side or ACCURATELY describe what you see!!

Sure, the HDD was actually reformateded. XP and W2K doesn't go together to well. There is a warningtext when installing XP. Sounds as an easy way out but it wasn't. The XP need more memory than I had (127 Mb). Which made the system very slow. My long trusted firewall from Symantec had to stand back for the built-in firewall from MS that came with the SP2. Still very slow compared with the performance of W2K Pro that I used before. Any ideas about this?
