Cannot run Setup for Windows 2000

By Red Dragoon ·
This is a Compaq Presario 5050. Setup has failed every time when it is copying dmboot.sys. I have used different Windows 2000 CDs. I have changed hard drives, cd-rom drives, and IDE cables. This is the first time this has happened, and I have no idea what could be causing it. What is dmboot.sys, and how can I fix it? Pretend I don't know anything about Windows 2000.

Cannot run Setup for Windows 2000

dmboot.sys > Logical Disk Manager
It oversees dynamic disks, allows the hard disk to be divided into partitions and supports mutlipartition volumes.

According to COMPAQs website, the Presario 5050 is a home computer and is not meant for windows2k (meaning they didn't develop the windows 2k drivers).

Switch operating systems.

Thanks for your help. I should have asked you five hours ago. What a waste.
