Hi all,

In a bind here with my old (and beloved) NT desktop.

1) Trying to fix recurrent RPC "busy" errors when accessing newer machine shares on my wireless network I ran into the post-6a security rollup.

2) Lost keyboard and mouse (but had eval W2K on another drive to boot to)

3) Followed part 1 of MS instructions on this issue and regained keyboard and mouse thorugh manual driver.sys renaming of intellipoint 2 files

4) Followed part 2 of the MS instructions (uninstall intellipoint 2 and next was to install 3.x) and after the reboot that was required lost mouse and keyboard again. Can't install intellipoint V3.x or do anything else!

5) Played around with MSI and i8 files with no luck from W2K. I just can't access NT to repair it/install intellipoint V3.x or return to 2.0!

Can anyone tell me how to install either intellipoint 2 or 3.x manually from what files to extract/copy (could put a virgen NT on another partition to obtain) and what registry entries need to made when the OS cannot be accessed for the actual installer to run it for me?

I do not want to lose years and years of stuff from reinstalling NT which at my version (pre SP3 CD) does not even recognize the NTFS drives during the install and wants to reformat all of them!
