On a multiboot system, I had Win 98 (on C) and Win 2000 (on J).
Last Fall (USA), I installed Win 2000 over the Win 98 on C.
Of course this is not clean, but things have been mostly OK until recently.

A few daze ago, I tried to update the Lexmark printer drivers in both OS.
The one on C has caused problems. Before addressing the printer problem, I
feel that I should first address the following:

Upon further investigation, in the OS on C, I just noticed that the are 3
problem devices listed in System Information.

1. Logical Disk Manager at the key Root\DMIO\0000 has error code 22.
2. The printer key has error code 28.
3. Microcode Update Device at key Root\System\0001 has error code 19.

In Device Manager, I noticed a yellow exclamation mark which informed me
that error code 19 means
"Windows could not retrieve the device's information from the registry".

The registry keys/values for Microcode Update Device are identical for both
the OS on C and the OS on J.
I also found MSFT KB articles 307152 and 288302, tho written for Win XP,
likely also apply to Win 2000. However, the articles refer to error 24, not
error 19.

I do not know what error codes 22 and 28 mean?

What's the best way to eliminate these issues, remembering that this not a
hardware issue as the other OS on the same hardware has no such problems?

Is the best way to just do a Repair of Win 2000 on C?

This may help. The best solution is a clean install. Upgrades are almost
always plagued with corruption.

Thanx.


It would seem that the solution to error 19 may be easiest with a repair.
I can uninstall the MicroCode Update DEvice, but I don't know how to
re-install as it is not a physical device.

Error 22 indicates that I dhould enable the Logical Disk Manager. Know of no
reason why it would have been disabled.

The error 28 for the printer is still a puzzle. I guess I'll try to install
Lexmark's .inf.

Error 22 went away when I enabled the Logical Disk Manager. I suspect that
this error was due to the Win 2000 install, perhaps, being confused because
I had been running a program in Win 98 that changed drive letter
assignments. Perhaps, that program disabled something that confused the Win
2000 install.

Interestingly, when the error 22 went away, the error 28 for the printer
also went away.

Two remaining problems are:

1. Why the error 19 on the Microcode Update Device. Perhaps, it is a false
error, as is the error reported in the KB articles for Win XP? I guess one
approach would be to run a Win 2000 Repair.

2. Problem installing update to Lexmark's printer drivers, likely due to
driver installation believing system is win9x instead of win 2000. I guess
I need to uninstall and disconnect the printer, then reconnect the printer
and have Win 2000 find the printer.

I found a number of keys in the registry that identify the system as being
an upgrade:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\PrevOSVersion\PlatformName = "Windows 98"

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Win9xUpg

I've not yet been courageous enough to delete those keys.

I did delete the following with no ill effect:

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce]"Prin
ting Migration"="rundll32.exe
C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\spool\\migrate.dll,ProcessWin9xNetworkPrinters"

Somehow, the Lexmark installation code is being deceived into believing the
system is Win 9x.

Seems to have something to do with the bidirectional drivers.

I really believe you simply have the basic-standard-corrupt-upgrade
installation.

I was thinking of two approaches:

1. Re-install Win 2000 over itself. Wouldn't that eliminate the keys
referring to the win 98 upgrade, whilst leaving the applications intact? But
I'm not sure that I have enough free space on the drive if much space is
needed for temporary files during the re-install.

2. Do a repair. But I doubt that this would remove the keys referring to the
Win 98 upgrade.

Thanx.

I've seen those articles, but they are not really detailed enough.

The error with the Microcode Update thingee would likely be fixed by a
repair.

I'll likely try the re-install after I do the next full backup.
