About Blue Screens in Win2k ****!!!!!!!!

How did you go about installing Win2K on the machines? At work I tried to create one machine that is setup how I want it, and using Norton Ghost 2001 to try and clone them over the network, and all the clones blue screened when they were booted up. The odd thing is all the machines were exaclty identical, same manufacturer and models. Win2K also has some issues with the order in which programs are installed on them. Like in our Programming labs, Microsoft Office HAS to be installed last, after the Visual Studio is installed, or Visual Studio does something to the shared files and Microsoft Office just crashes. We finally figured out which order all the programs have to be installed in, and everything works great. I dont know why this is, or anyway to avoid it, its just something you have to learn what causes it and how to deal with it.

If you're ghosting, you need to run sysprep.exe on the machine before you clone it. It will delete the SID and all other user-specific and computer-specific information.

This might be causing the blue screens.

Hi,

Right the SID will give you those screens , you can also run ghost walker to change the SID.

I am too lazy to go to my notes, but W2K allows you to setup and quit just before you get to the machine specific part. Intent is to allow cloning for multi-setup. If you intiristed, let me know, i'll look it up.

If I'm reading this correctly in which I may not be since I have not slept in days... the pc's are fully loaded and getting blue screen? if so you would want to check your registry memory- and your virtual memory- and check to see that they are set high enough-
If the machines are set real low it will continually give blue screens of death to try to dump the memory sector-

Hope this helps, if not email me- I will find the proper answers.
