SP2 install on 60GXP causes INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE stop error

Hi,

after installing SP2 on Win2K Pro, the system won't reboot. It halts with a blue screen at startup with an INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE stop.

I tried to workaround the problem by creating an integrated installation (win2K+SP2 in one shot) and re-install everything, but then the Win2K installer doesn't detect my hard drive in its partitioning screen.

My HDD is a brand new IBM 60GXP 40Go (ATA/100) on an Asus K7M (UDMA/66) mobo.

I searched the web like nuts for articles but got -almost- nothing. If anybody has any idea, feel free to post !

Thanks,

This could be the issue indeed, since I'm upgrading from Win2K-no SP to SP2 directly.

I'll check it tonight and post back ASAP.

Thanks,
