Maybe Microsoft (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;q255220&) can help.

By "boot up fails" do you mean that hard disk access fails? If so you will probably find that NTLDR is the NT boot loader and it has somehow been corrupted.

Re-insert your Win 2K disk and use the recovery mode.
