I have been through this before with server 2003. A was advised to reinstall which I did.
Now I have just discovered the same issue on my main win2000 PC. Since installing W2000 I have installed at least 50 other programs and taken Ghost images at regular intervals. All with the intention of sending the final image out to 17 identical PCs. I DO NOT WANT TO REINSTALL WIN2000.
I have read all previous topics on this issue in Experts exchange and the following Microsoft article:
which contains no recommendation.
I have used this PC in a workgroup now for some months without problems at all.
It will be used in a domain soon.
MUST I REINSTALL AND LOSE WEEKS OF WORK, OR CAN I USE IT TO CREATE MASTER IMAGES FOR ROLLING OUT?
This is very important.
