MSRedist problem when reinstalling Windows 2000
Posted on 2006-11-12
When attempting to reinstall Windows 2000, I get a message asking to load a disk with the MSRedist file on it. I have seen some questions on this issue, but I am at the point where I cannot boot my system. I do have Norton on my system, but since I can't reboot, I can't remove it.
During the boot process, it asks me to load the Windows 2000 disk and goes through a restart where it keeps asking for MSRedist. If I cancel and continue, the install proceeds to a screen titled "Performing Final Tasks". The system then hangs when it is halfway through the "Registers components" process. It eventually asks me for the MSRedist disk again.
