My system blue screen crashed with an error message suggesting it could not load cdr4-2k.sys.  I did what most red blooded males would do and deleted all references to cdr4_2k.sys from my registry and also renamed the file to .old.

Now the system boots up fine but there is not CD/DVD attached.

No worries I say and ran the w2k repair and guess what, not a scrap of difference.

So how do proceed from here andy thoughts?
