I don't have any problems at the start of the install - it
starts copying files to my PC and gets to the end, or near
the end, and gives me the error message. If you click on
C to continue, it acts as if it is at the end of the
install and reboots.
It even then tries to load Windows 2000 but just keeps
I am installing Windows 2000 SP4 and SP4 is on the server
The thing is that I did get the image on the server once,
but realised that I had forgotton to add some software, so
I brought the image back, removed it from the server,
added the sofware and "risrep" again. All seemed fine,
until I tried to bring the image back again, and now I
fear I have lost everything!!
