>> Disk I/O error: Status = 00001000
>> Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or

>> Does anyone know if this file is easy to get at on the Win 2000 CD,

Hi... Before trying all that, try booting into Safe Mode (F8 on boot) and:
1. Select "Boot from Last Known Good Configuration." and, if that
2. Boot into Safe Mode again with Command Prompt, and type the command
Either of these stands a chance of restoring your system, though you may
need an install disk to accomplish them...
