troubleshooting problems with windows 2000
Troubleshooting Problems with Windows 2000
  • Problems that prevent the operating system from loading properly
  • Problems that occur after loading
backing up the system state
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
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
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
The Steps to Booting
  • Ntldr executes NTDetect.com 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
Troubleshooting the Boot Process
