windows 2000 Professional installation cd

  seh 00:43 14 Aug 09

Hi, does anyone have a spare cd rom for Windows 2000 professional os? I have an old IBM Thinkpad T20 which has been working ok until I tried to upgrade some memory. Now when I turn on the laptop it will not boot, has an error message stating that files are missing \winnt\system32\config\system. It suggests I press F8 and install cdrom to do a repair. Problem is I don't have the cd and don't know anyone who still uses this os to get a copy. I hope someone can assist me.

Hi Fruitbat, still have not resolved this problem. You sent me a link to repair without cd but after reading I have to download a repair utility onto floppy disk but I only have a cd rom drive and the other option to repair registry starts from run command but I cannot get to this point as I cannot reboot the laptop. As previously mentioned I need a windows 2000 professional cd which I haven't got. Do I have no other options as I can't seem to find anyone to lend me a cd.

download the 4 files and run to create 4 floppies which will allow you to boot win2000 and do the registry repair
