Hi All , I had an istallation of win 2000 which i couldn't boot to. It was freezing at the windows screen ( after the bios loading and the f8 option to choose ). I tried to boot 1. from the emergency repair disk failed 2. from the original win 2000 Cd succeded but when reboot from the HD failed. I also tried the repair option but wasnt able to boot from the HD. At a point wasn't able to boot anymore neither from the win 2000 CD. I decided to install win 2000 at the same HD without making a new partition and now i have win2000 at C:\WINNT1 ( the new ) and C:\WINNT ( the old ) The file systen is NTFS. I Checked the disk with chkdsk /r Now i can boot to the second installation. Is there a way i could transfer or merge the old installation to the new one ? My nightmare is to do all the programm installations from scratch ,configurate the varius programms and so on. I'd like to repair the first installation of win 2000 and after that i can boot to it , delete the second one. Or if it's a way that i could " transfer " the programms from the old installation to the new ( it isn't obviously paste and copy :rolleyes: ) Any idea would be highly aprecciated. Thanks in advange .
