I created setup boot disk for Windows 2000 Pro as per KB
article 197063. When I try to install from the floppies
while running disk #2 I receive the following error
message:
"File SETUPREG.HIV could not be loaded. The error code is
4105. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit."

The CD for Windows 2000 Pro is not bootable and I am
trying to install to a new drive and don't want to install
Windows 98 on it just so I can upgrade to 2000. At a lost
to understand why the boot disk won't work. Help is needed.

To do a clean install, either boot the Windows 2000 install CD-Rom or setup
disks. The set of four install disks can be created from your Windows 2000
CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom and execute
makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow the
prompts.

When you get to the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions
found. After you delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again
restart the pc booting the CD-Rom or setup disks to avoid unexpected drive
letter assignments with your new install.

If you think that the 2000 CD-ROM is "unbootable", chances are you are
booting up the system with a boot up option that does NOT support booting up
using the CD-ROM.

Please check your BIOS options and ensure that you have set the boot up
option to be able to use CD-ROM boot up...

Then follow the instractions of Dave.
