    Just got a copy of 2k this morning, and i partitioned my 80 gb to 5, 4, and 65 gb's. The 5 and 4 are both FAT32. Now, i had XP originally installed on the 5 (C: ), and the left over space was a 75 gb drive. I used partition magic in the morning, to make a 4 gb partition out of free space on the 75. Everything went perfectly, albeit a little long (i slept through it). Anyways, i proceded to install 2k, it stalled without a hitch. Now, when i try to boot into XP, this error pops up..

    Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

    I dont have a clue what to do. XP booted fine before i installed 2K, now I get this crap...... :(

    I had this same problem a while back and the only solution I found was to have 2k on c: and XP on my d: drive.

    I know this doesnt help you out but hey its the best I can do.
