Hi,
could someone please upload teh files necessary for the Win2K bootdisks. The Win2K CD I use to create bootdisks keeps on producing messed up bootdisks (especially teh file ntkrnlmp.exe). I need to fix my computer by tonight, and really need the bootdisks (it doesn't want to boot from cd for some wierd reason.)

When I rule the world, Apple will only mean the fruit.

SORRY, REREAD YOUR POST. I AM CURRENTLY UNABLE TO UPLOAD THE FILES AT THE MOMENT, BUT WILL TRY TO HELP LATER TODAY WHEN I GET ACCESS TO MY WORKSTATION.

Hey I just posted this in another forum so, look beyond the additional details of dual booting but this should provide you a solution to meet you need:

Before you format/reinstall Win98, create a W2k Startup Floppy Disk.

1.) First format a floppy disk in W2k (Important so W2k can read the proper disk boot sector). While in windows explorer make it so you can see all hidden files and super hidden file (menu bar "View|Options"). Then copy to this same floppy disk from the %root directory% (on the C:\ drive): Ntldr, Ntdetect.com, Boot.ini, and Ntbootdd.sys (if your HDD's are SCSI,or 2 seperate HDD's), Since your system is set up to dual booting with Win98, copy these files to the same disk also: Autoexec.bat, Bootsect.dos, Command.com, Config.sys, Io.sys, and Msdos.sys

This is so that when you format/reinstall Win98, you will be able to boot into W2k.

2.) Also create a separate Emergency Recovery Disk (ERD) in W2k (make sure you chech the box to copy your registry also). You can find that utility to create the ERD under the "Backup Applet".

Please do this first before formatting\reinstalling Win98, you will save yourself a ton of headaches.

Reason, when you format/reinstall Win98 you will overwrite the MBR for W2k. The two disk that you create above will allow you to boot back into W2k and restore the MBR you orginally have before formatting/reinstalling Win98.

Good luck!

Upload - email...same meaning, I don't think that there is an upload repository in this forum, but when you are in dire need of help you say or do the first thing that comes to mind. I just toss a line to a drowning man without question.
