I have Windows 2000 successfullt installed on an old 20GB hard drive. I want to dual-boot with Windows ME on an 80GB drive. The new 80GB hard disk is a Western Digital so I used the Data Lifeguard DOS boot floppy from the Western Digital website to copy the Win 2000 (C partition) over to the new drive (D partition).
Windows ME is on the C partition of the 80Gb drive and boots up fine.
Windows 2000 will NOT boot up at all (Normal mode, Safe mode etc.)
I have tried editing the boot.ini file and booting from the Win 2000 cdrom and typing FIXBOOT
But I still cannot get in - keeps giving me blue error screens about ntoskrnl.exe
I already tried installing it fresh from the Windows 2000 cdrom but it kept failing with a STOP ERROR blue screen every time I got to the Restart - doesn't get near the Windows 2000 desktop. That's why I thought copying the old working installation to the new drive might be more successful.
