SysExpert is right.

Boot up and press f8 at the NT screen to enter the boot menu.  
From there you can select to create a bootlog file.  

This is the file SysExpert is referring to and it will list all of the files used in the load process.

Boot your W2K install CD.
It should find your install.
One of the options is to run a "repair".  This should fix your install.

Be sure to reapply your latest SP once the repair is complete.

The only other way to recover is to run a parallel install.

Install your W2K to c:\tempnt\ for example.  Then once this install boots up and works, you can compare the dlls and copy over any missing or corrupted dlls.
