I am trying to reload win 2000 pro, sp4 over itself. I put the cd in while windows was up, ran setup, and things worked fine until it tried to reboot. UPon reboot, I get a stop error, can't find boot drive.
Now when booting, I get a choice of windows 2000 or setup. If I try the windows 2000 it will boot right up. IN the boot file, it has the regular 2000 booting to drive 0 etc. but it has setup booting to drive c; etc.
If I change the boot file so that setup is the same as the regular, will that work to get it booted back up in setup or is there a simpler way? I have tried the stuff mentioned in the MS error file.
It seems the problem is that I have my boot hd running on SATA 1, but as this is a dual boot machine, my linux drive is on IDE 1. When I built this machine, I had a large new IDE drive available and I put it to use. Everything is set in the bios to boot on the SATA drive, but apparently, it thinks the IDE drive is C drive. So, would changing the boot file work?
Thank you for any help you can give.
