locating file 'NT5INF.CAT'


G

Guest

I reinstalled Windows 2000 from a factory CD. Everthing
appears to have loaded OK, except for one file named
NT5INF.CAT

During the installation of Windows 2000, the computer is
requesting that this file on the CD-ROM is needed. So, I
insert the Windows 2000 CD, but setup fails to install
the file. As a result, I am unable to get into the
Windows environment, and the computer continues to cycle
through this same process without booting into Windows.

Any suggestions on working through this problem? What if
I format the harddrive? How do I format the hardrive in
DOS and remain outside of Windows?

Do you have access to a Win98 Start-up disk (emergency disk)?
It's really a must have utility tool, Not only will this boot you into DOS it
will also load any CD drives you have installed.

You can get it from www.bootdisk.com... only if you've got $4 to spend and a PayPal account or credit card. :(

Not an overly-exorbitant price for a handful of totally free utilities. I guess the $4 covers their putting them all on one CD. :lol:

Actually, for the Novice computer user, it's probably a good idea and worth the small amount of money.

CAVEAT: I have NOT downloaded the bootdisk version! Therefore, I cannot vouch for the functionality of their CD. It may work, it may not. I don't know. Perhaps if someone did pay to download it, they could post the results of its use here.
