I used GHOST to image a dying HDD to a new one. Everything went OK until it
rebooted. Now when I enter the password a screen comes up and says

Your system has no paging file, or the paging file is too small.

It then gives instructions on how to increase the size etc. When I click
on OK, the login screen comes up again, and then the massage. I cannot get
past the login screen.
I have also tried in safe mode, but the same thing....

Any ideas ???


Thanks

I am also having a similar issue the original poster was having (I'm on Windows 2000 however). Not sure if the author's problem was resolved but I could not even follow the instructions given on the site since it took me right back to the log-on screen without even letting me see the start menu or anything. Please advise. Thank you!

Ok, I was able to resolve me issue actually. I just had to connect to a networked computer and change the registry a bit as per instructions on:

Changing the registry allowed me to actually log instead of just being kicked right back out. I thought I'd state the results here for whomever stumbles onto this forum in the future.

This problem occurs with 2000 (and sometimes XP) when you try to boot the computer with two active Windows installations (usually on separate drives). The main installation gets confused about the correct drive letter, and won't complete booting.

There are other ways to fix it, as the article describes.

More info...

Last night I booted from a W95 startup floppy (from http://freepctech.com/pc/002/files010.shtml), and ran FDISK /MBR. This wipes out the current Master Boot Record, and forces Windows to recreate it with the "correct" drive letter.

It worked. I had to restart twice, but I got my W2K hard drive back.

Thanks a million Geezer. Used a Win 98 boot disk and FDISK /MBR, worked like a charm!
