Step by step instructions for an upgrade installation2 l.jpg
Step-by-Step Instructions for an Upgrade Installation

  • Perform the upgrade

    • Insert the Windows 2000 CD in the CD-ROM drive and select “Yes” to upgrade

    • Major phases of setup

      • Report phase

      • Setup phase

Troubleshooting problems with windows 2000 l.jpg
Troubleshooting Problems with Windows 2000

  • Problems that prevent the operating system from loading properly

  • Problems that occur after loading

Backing up the system state l.jpg
Backing Up the System State

  • System State data

    • Files critical to a successful operating system load

      • Files necessary to boot the OS

      • The Windows 2000 registry

      • All system files in the %SystemRoot% folder

Understanding the boot process l.jpg
Understanding the Boot Process

  • Windows 2000 can be installed in two partitions

    • The system partition

      • The active partition

      • Contains the files necessary to boot Windows 2000 in the root directory

    • The boot partition

      • Contains the main Windows 2000 directory and usually contains the page file, which is used as virtual memory

The steps to booting l.jpg
The Steps to Booting

  • System BIOS performs POST, then turns to the MBR on the hard drive for an OS

  • The MBR looks to the bootstrap loader program in boot sector of the active partition; bootstrap loader program executes ntldr, the Windows 2000 boot loader program

  • Ntldr reads Boot.ini and provides a boot loader menu for a dual booting system, if indicated


The steps to booting9 l.jpg
The Steps to Booting

  • Ntldr executes to detect and configure the hardware present, reads information from the registry about device drivers, and loads them

  • Ntldr loads the Windows 2000 kernel, including the Hal.dll and Ntoskrnl.exe files, and passes control to Ntoskrnl.exe, the kernel-controlling module

Troubleshooting the boot process l.jpg
Troubleshooting the Boot Process

  • Try the simple things first

  • Determine at what point in the boot process the system fails

  • Use a troubleshooting tool

    • Advanced Options Menu

    • Recovery Console

    • Emergency Startup Disk

Recovery console l.jpg
Recovery Console

  • Used when the operating system does not start properly or hangs during the load

  • Provides a command-line interface for you to perform maintenance and repairs to a damaged registry, system files, and the file system on the hard drive

Emergency repair process l.jpg
Emergency Repair Process

  • To recover from problems with corrupted or missing operating system files or a corrupted hard drive boot sector

  • Use as a last resort; it restores the system to the state it was immediately after the Windows 2000 installation

  • Points to a folder on the hard drive where the registry was backed up at installation (%SystemRoot%\repair folder)
