Error Message: F12=Network Service Boot

The BIOS may have reset to the default settings. Sounds like this was originally a workstation on a Corporate Domain Network. Access the BIOS and reset the boot order for CD first, then Hard Drive - you can even disable Network as a boot option. Power spike won't affect the Hard Drive contents, but it can reset a BIOS. Your win2000 should be intact.

Compaq Armada M700 - failure to boot from CD

Hello Blessie,
This is Romeet,i shall try and help you with this problem. Before formatting for a new installation of w2k, did you delete your partitions and create a new partition or did you just overwrite the old installation partition?Besides i hope you did a backup of your data before any of above processes in the event you might need it later on? Please let me know about the partitioning and i shall try and help further accordingly as most likely it looks like a Disk Partitioning Misconfiguration / Problem
