Adding IDE drive on secundary master
Posted on 2000-04-15
I'm having problems adding an IDE drive as secundary master.
I get the message at beginning of boot :
"Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt <windows 2000 root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe Please reinstall a copy of the above file.
My system seems to be confused...
My previous setup was :
Primary Master and Primary Slave IDE HD.
Nothing on Secundary IDE channels.
SCSI HD + CDROM SCSI + CDRW SCSI.
I removed the new IDE in order to be able to access win2000 again and i installed the "recovery console". Then I hooked up the new IDE HD again as secundary master and choose the recovery console at boot time : problem I'm having here is that it keeps telling me the administrator password I type in is not correct... it is however (i checked and even changed to be sure).
I'm running the professional version of Win2000 which resides on my SCSI HD (E-drive).
Thank you for your help !
