Have a Toshiba 6000 laptop That was virus riddled when I got it, It is running Windows 2000 even though it has a Windows XP product key sticker on bottom.  System boots all the way to right before login screen would appear it does a reboot.  I originally removed the drive and put it in an external bay USB which I plugged in as secondary drive on another Laptop.   AVG scaned and removed virus used superspywareremover to remove spyware.   This computer did boot to winodws before I removed drive.
I am also short Windows 2000 CD/DVD the only I have is scratched up and Microsoft removed ISO off subscription downloads.  Coud use some help to diagnose and resolve problem.  Wont boot to safe mode and Hard Drive is currently back in the external bay so I have access to log files

I attached the ntbtlog.txt boot log which I ran on the last boot attempt.   The laptop I am using to backup the data and to diagnosis this thing is a Dell running Windows XP Home Edition.   While I am waiting for answer I am going to try to find a Windows 2K setup disk.   Would like to work at ths tongiht if possible.

Thanks in advance, I will respoind quickly to any comments.
