OS repair hangs at "Setup is now starting Windows 2000"

I have a Windows 2000 machine that periodically pops a blue screen looking for a file, then restarts.  All of the hardware is tested and is good.  I attempted to repair the OS and the setup hangs at "Setup is now starting Windows 2000"  -- It also now shows two ways to start the computer, one starts the original Win2k OS, and the other is the Win2k setup, which just goes into the setup and hangs every time.  I'd really like to get a repair on this OS - Any suggestions?

You are very welcome.

Just for future searchers....Which command helped, or did you do both, or something else? It makes the site that much more helpful, if future readers can see exactly what solved the problem. Sometimes a link that someone provides, just kinda pushes people in the right direction....Glad its fixed though..
