Re: havin problem..
This makes no sense, you installed 2000 AS, you was running XP SP2, but you can start XP, so what exactly is going on here?

Re: havin problem..
Okay you can NOT install 2000 from within XP. Since it is older XP will not allow it. So something else had to happen. From what i am gathering you must have tried to do it from a CD. If that is the case then peter is right. Your XP install became corrupt. Use the XP disc and do a repair.

Re: havin problem..
You will have to format the partition from within XP to get rid of 2000. Now to get it off the boot menu go

Start>Run>msconfig>Boot tab. When that comes up check all known paths you should see the 2000 path is invalid and it removes it. If not manually go into the boot.ini and remove it from the boot menu.
