Install loop on Windows 2000

  HighTower 10:31 14 May 2003

Hi all!

I've just re-installed windows 2000 on a pc and appear to be stuck in some sort of install loop. I get the following message when I start the computer up, even after restarting.

"Windows 2000 has finished installing new devices. You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect."

If I cancel the message the computer operates perfectly normally. If I restart the computer it normally re-appears!

Anyone any ideas?

Have you got any yellow conflicts in device manager?

Thanks for reply,

All appears to be normal, and all hardware actually works OK!

Confusing! The message appears periodically, not every time I restart, so maybe it's still settling in as a lot has been installed the last few hours.

Re-installed Windows 2000, all OK!
