Windows 2000 is an operating system for use on both client and server computers. It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the last version of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation. Four editions of Windows 2000 were released (Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server) that shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console. All versions of the operating system support NTFS 3.0, Encrypting File System, as well as basic and dynamic disk storage. The Windows 2000 Server family includes support for Active Directory services, Distributed File System and fault-redundant storage volumes.

Hello, this is my problem.
 I have a Compaq Evo W8000 Running windows 2000 professional windows NT Workstation 4.0
It recently crashed and so I reinstalled windows 2000 and it worked again for a short while and then crashed again I removed the back panel and it was full of dust so I decided to take it apart and clean it up with compressed air and put it back together without any knowledge of what I was doing and it did not go well. First when turned on the PC it went on loading windows 2000 and then just as it was about to enter windows 2000 it went back into setup and started loading again and then told me the file NT5INF.CAT on service pack 4 is needed then copy files from GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROMO\I386 I then I tried to load the Service pack 4 and I discovered that the CD drive was not showing on the boot list so I cannot load up the files needed from the cd disk. All I have to boot from is the floppy disk 3.5 or the hard drive C: or Compaq Ethernet Controller. Any help or information explained in layman’s terms would be much appreciated as I am not a Pc expert by any stretch of the imagination.
Thank you.
NOTE:  I only use this PC windows 2000 for running Media composer Video editing.

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

The file 'NT5INF.CAT' on Service Pack 4 CD is needed is the error that I am getting when I try to install Win2k.

Where can I get this file?

I am getting this error after the setup re-starts the computer.
 I do not have Service pack 4 CD

Hello. I have a Multi-Tech FaxFinder FF420 fax server. The server is configured to write the faxes over to a file share. We recently upgraded the file share server from Windows 2000 Advanced Server to Windows 2012 Standard.  Now the faxes that are written to the file share have a file size of 0KB.

I have thought of permissions issues, SMB settings and other security features but if it were a permissions issue the file shouldn't be writable in the first place.

We have a multi function Kyocera that write PDFs and TIFs to the server.  We have users (Windows 10 clients) that access file shares able to read/write.

Any ideas?

I have a Server 2008 Standard sp2. This is a non R2 server. I have a Server 2012 Essentials that im trying to make the PDC, but I get this error when trying to make it a DC.

"Verification of replica failed.  The forest functional level is Windows 2000.  To install Windows Server 2012 domain or domain controller, the forest functional level must be Windows Server 2003."

However, when I go check the functioning level it is at 2008 level.

I have a web-site (popswine.com) running under W2k Server. Can that code be moved to a newer version of Windows Server without any modification?

I had this question after viewing STOP: c0000218 (Registry File Failure) - Windows 2000 Server.

Hello everyone...after consulting with a few other forums on this topic, with limited success, I am hoping to find a definitive solution here on the Experts Exchange.

Having posted a number of topics on this issue elsewhere, I'll keep it brief: I have an HP Vectra desktop computer that runs Windows 2000 Professional, but the device was stricken with the c0000218 "Blue Screen Of Death" back in 2010. With the help of some online computer-repair forum users elsewhere, I've managed to make some progress in trying to troubleshoot the error In the past year-plus, but have unfortunately hit a bit of a standstill in the process, and no other forum users have been able to help me move forward. Which finally brings me here to the Experts Exchange page. To save some trouble, I will provide links to the other forum topics I've started, some of which have screen captures to illustrate my progress, at the bottom of this post.

Fortunately, much of the hard work has already been done by myself with the help of the other forums' users, so hopefully, that one helpful tip to get through my logjam can come from any one of you here on this site.

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies :-)
