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.

    Hello Targetuser =)

    You can get the NTFS Bootdisk but it will be reader only for free :)

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

    Use knoppix.

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