Win 2k gone loopy

I've just installed a very early copy of Win 2k (no service packs) on a newly built machine with the idea of using it as an archive for documents and pictures. The install went ok and it was working fine till I decided to review bios settings before installing applications. I can't recall doing anything silly during the bios check so maybe there is another explanation but afterwards I can't launch win 2k. It goes through the POST process, the coloured windows welcome screen appears while a progress strip travels left to right. The next screen I see is the Bios going through the POST again. The machine would loop like this for ever if I let it. It keeps going half way through logon and then starting all over again. I'd be grateful for any ideas.
