Upgrade Win2000 server to Win Server 2003 to get red of the error message "SystemCED"

Hi Guys,

According to the error message I went to many Google solutions, and EE's, and nothing helped so far, simply because the system registry in Win2000 should be exceed 20 MB, and I don't have any backup?

The only solution I've seen so far, that I need to upgrade to Win server2003, When I boot with Win server 2003 it can't see the previous installed win2000, So I can upgrade to 2003 on the existing one, So My Question is "can this be done without a clean install?" because I don't wanted to lose my Oracle installation.

Solutions tried so far:

ChkReg.exe from Microsoft

Other very Good solution:

I went through all steps till I reach:
- If it doesn't load, it's simply corrupted. You can either use the backup hive you just loaded or start with a fresh install.
- If it does load, continue on with the fix.

And Unfortunately I'm in the first case "- If it doesn't load, it's simply corrupted."

Is there other way to fix it?

Your help is highly appreciated.

Naser

I agree with you partially, but I'm trying to avoid such solutions (Fresh installation).

Anyway, thanks for your input, Any other idea.

Rub,

Which size you are talking about?
The size of the system registry file.

Although that was not the solution for the problem, I'll reward you the points for your efforts, I implement the system from scratch and I finally found a copy of the backup some where in my PC, I used it and that's it.

Once again, Thanks for your efforts, and sorry for the delay to come back to you guys.

Regards,

Naser
