Question about Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional for PC
Stupidly went into safe mode to try and find solution to D:/not accessible error message and now stuck in safe mode, have tried to boot normally and all the other configurations in safe mode no joy. PC just boots into safe mode each time.
As msconfig not on win 2k downloaded version and installed on the pc and went through options ie boot ini tab and make sure safe mode not checked but still no joy. Any help would be much appreciated.
Before you can boot from cd, u need to set the cmos boot choice so system attempts to boot from the cd , FIRST, then the hard drive,,, default is ,,floppy HD, then cd,,
rearrange to have cd choice first,,
once booted from the cd, delete , present partitions, then create a new one,, or better yet 2 so defraging the OS is faster.
you will be asked about partitions during win install,,,set asside 10g for the operating system

The system is corrupted, that is the reason why it starts only in safe mode.
Easiest way to proceed is reinstalling Windows 2000 pro as an update installation.
To do this start a Windows installation from Windows (not from dos booting with disk inside).
Do not do new installation, do upgrade installation, it will preserve all your data, and most of your software and settings.
Do a backup of all your data first.
