I've been happy with my windows 2000 since the 126th\last re-installation , now i got this freakin' seems-impossible-to-solve problem and i don't want to re-install it again :( .

I tried to install Linux on another partition untill i reached a part in linux installation where it said "formatting" so i freaked out and shut down the computer. Then when i rebooted to go into windows , it took (and still takes) like 10 minutes just to reach the login box !!!! it takes like 5 minutes in the part where it shows windows logo with a loading bar below and then some other 5+ minutes untill the login box pops up.

My previous attempts to solve the problem :
1- drive C: defragment.
2- repairing windows through re-installing (like upgrading)
3- scanned for virus and spyware although it all happened after trying to install linux..

*EDIT*
i just tried "CHKDSK /F" and booting in safe mode and in both cases it still takes long.

but the problem still exist !!!! im almost tearing my hair out !! i can't even find a reason for it !!! restarting is like a nightmare for me currently so i keep my computer on :(


PLEASE HELP ME GUYS !!!! :(

ok seems like i can't get to that recovery console cuz :
1- i don't have windows 2000 CD.
2- the other method (winnt32.exe /cmdcons) seems like it won't work.

so... i've read about the BOOTCFG /REBUILD command , some site said :
"/rebuild—Same as /add except /rebuild automatically recreates boot.ini with all found installations if the user confirms. "

This is how my boot.ini file looks like (wich seems typical compared to examples on the net) :
Code:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
shall i edit it in anyway to make the boot faster or is it alright??

and if you have more ideas PLEASE let me know about them :)

Yes I have more ideas log into safe mode check how long it take to login into safe mode
After you in safe mode check on computer management event viewer check for error on the system tab and post then here also check on device manager for errors on any devices if you find any device with error uninstall it

- i think it got worst now. It won't boot into safe mode. The loading bar goes to full then stops there and the HDD won't flash anymore.

- No errors under device manager.

- Loads of errors in event viewer. Here is a screen shot :

and here is the text file wich has the report :Report

hope this leads to something :(

if you need more detail about anything just tell me and ill show it right away but help :(

Quite frankly without the Windows 2000 Cd this is going to be kinda hard to fix according to error message you got installing service pack 4 can fix your problem if you already have SP4 reinstalled normally in this situation if you had the Windows cd
doing a repair install will most likely fix your problem I am going to try to duplicate your problem on my Windows 2000 virtual machine I will get back to you hopefully with some useful information

Since it seems that RAS is having a problem on your PC you might just want to disable this service to keep it from running. Look under all sections of your event log to see if there are any indications as to what is causing your problem.
