Windows 2000 pro pagefile error

By rmckelvey ·
We took a drive from a machine that would not boot and added it as a second drive to an identical machine for the purposes of extracting data.

After taking it back out the machine we put it in will not log on now as it gets a pagefile error.

If we return the 2nd drive the machine boots. the drive that was put in to get data off came up as E: so I dont believe at restart it booted from it but im stumped.

Your situation requires more info.

What was the entire error message?

Are the drives connected to a SCSI adapter?

Was there another hard drive in the computer, The drive you installed should have been the drive not E

Possible solution,
The pagefile resides on the root of the bootable drive and should be least 1.5 the size of the installed ram. So if you copied files from the other drive did you leave enough room for the pagefile.
