Windows 2000 Emergency Repair Floppy
Last updated: 1/25/02

Q.  How does one make a Windows 2000 Emergency Repair Disk?

A.  Repair of a Windows 2000 computer that won’t boot may be possible with the Recovery Console and an Emergency Repair Disk (floppy).  An Emergency Repair Disk can be made by inserting a floppy in a Windows 2000 computer and clicking Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Backup, Emergency Repair Disk…  An Emergency Recovery disk is not bootable.  Use the Windows 2000 Setup Boot floppies (http://duxcw.com/faq/win/2kboot.htm) to boot the computer or boot the computer to the Windows CD, if the computer has that feature, and use the Recovery Console.  To boot to the CD, you may have to change the first boot device setting in the Computer's CMOS Setup.  Larry
