Got myself into a right old fix ... I bought a (Dell) windows 2000 system preloaded with lots of large-scale scanning software. My idea was to back up the HD. I used Norton Ghost to back it up onto DVDs, then I restored the Ghost images onto a new HD. The new HD wont boot (strangely it is missing a small partition).
I didnt change anything on the original drive. I used partition manager to examine it only. Now when I try to boot from the original drive I get the Limited Virtual Memory error - no matter what I do, even in safe mode it just defaults to the same error message "Your system is running without a correctly sized paging file". Apparently somehow the drive allocations in the registry may have been changed. is this so? and how can I fix it. thank you!
