    Hello friends,

    I'm getting an error I've never seen before and I was wondering if someone could help. I had to change the HD from one machine to another with similar, but not equal, specs. I was getting a "Inaccessible boot device" error. I've gotten this before and I just re-install W2K and I don't loose anything. But this time I got a "VGA.sys is corrupted" error and won't get pass that. Does someone know how to get around it, if at all possible?

    Thanks in advance

    Duncan

    Install the correct video drivers for your video card, so Win2K will use them instead of the VGA.SYS (default VGA drivers).

    Is there a way to install those at the console (DOS)? Windows is not booting and that's why I was running the setup again.

    Thanks
