Windows 2000 has a corrupt file. It won't let us boot up.


Are there any boot disks that will allow us to see a NTFS partition so we can fix this?

We need a boot disk that will show the C: drive on a WIndows 2000 box.

So why dont you try using Bart's PE Builder CD to get into the system for copying any required file :)

Use knoppix.
www.knoppix.com

Once you boot from knoppix cd, you will have full read & write access to all FAT, as well as NTFS partitions.
