Hi grg35,

Are you saying the copy of hivesys.inf on the original cd in th \i386 directory is corrupt?

hey if all you want is a new file post here an email address (any will do) and I will send you one for W2k Pro if that's what you want.

Cheers, Babe.

Hi Babe Ruth, yes thats what I am after, can you send it to
I would greatly appreciate it.
I am assuming I can copy CD to hard drive replace faulty file and then reinstall from harddrive?
Appreciate your help.
