The stop error occurs when the system starts, after the graphical "Windows 2000 Server Family" screen is seen. It occurred after moving an OS to another computer and doing a number of things to let the system boot to the first hard drive.
Please view the problem before this one, located at https://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_20345102.html
it has all the info you need.
The system booted fine before to another Windows 2000 installation on the second hard drive, so that might be a clue. Also, using ghost to copy a backup of the OS from another hard drive reveals the error: Unable to update file boot.ini: too many partitions. All other files copy. This problem really perplexes me, as I would like to avoid a reinstallation.
Any other questions, please ask.
