I tried booting up to win2k like normal only to get a Stop error [A Blue screen with white text telling me that windows2000 messed up while booting]
Here is a "summary" of what that blue screen said. For the first few lines, it's nearly exactly what it said, and the rest is paraphrasing. Beginning summary:
Stop: 0x0000001E (0xC0000005, 0x8041F228, 0x00000000, 0x00000030)
Address 8041F228 base at 80400000, DateStamp 384d9b17 - ntoskrnl.exe
If this screen is the first time you've seen it, then reboot. If not, then Check your disk space, disable the driver mentioned in the Stop message, or change your video adapter drivers.
Also, check your hardware vendor for BIOS updates, or disable BIOS memory option like caching or shadowing.
In my win98 installation, I checked my diskspace [which was abundant] and defragged the partition my win2000 was on. But after that, I kept on getting the same Stop message & blue screen when I tried booting to win2k.
I tried adding /sos to the line in my boot.ini that described my win2k installation – but it didn’t help me any – no bad drivers were listed or anything.
I also tried the Last Good Configuration option several times with no luck.
