Can't start a fresh installation of Win2000
Posted on 2001-07-01
I just installed Win2000 on a partition of my hard disk and it looked like it went fine. At the end it told me that the installation was successful and that my computer had to reboot. After rebooting, the startup screen appeared normally.
When the desktop blue background appeared, it somehow stalled for a few seconds, and then, without any warning or error message it rebooted. The same scenario occurs every time I try to boot Win2000 (startup screen, blue desktop background, reboot).
I read that Win2000 auto-reboots when it sees a problem but I can't disable this because I can't boot (safe mode won't work either, it freezes...).
I suppose it's not a hardware problem since both linux and WinMe run well on my machine.
