hy all!

i got big problems with win 2K with all updates, see some of them:
CCE was encoding at 0.42 but in win 98SE was running at 1.26.
PowerDVD,DIKO,MencodeME,PackShot don't work.
dvddecrypter run at 1,4x max and need more than a hour to rip a dvd in my 2 drives,
no matter what i choose but in 98SE run at ~7.6x!
IE crashing,firefox crashing, blue screen with lots of advices...
i was burning a cdrw for my friend yesterday and the system reboot alone
...it happen 2 times....¡Se aprovechan de mi nobleza!
the new tmpgenc crash after open...well,this is what i am remember now.
i never get any of this problems using win98SE!
then,as a "extreme expert" i think: just update to XP !
¡Todos mis movimientos están fríamente calculados!

now is reeeeeeeally better:
the system only crashed 3 times in 6 hours...
powerdvd,MencoderME,PackShot and DIKO still not running.
dvddecrypter running a "little better".
CCE encoding at 0.768 and crash 2 times.
the new tmpgenc open but advice about lameacm.acm that break "don't remember what"...
and i'm ¡Lo sospeche desde un principio!
as i told,never happen before with 98SE or ME.
why? whyyyyyyyyy?
please,give me hints (or bill telephone to say the true about his mumy)!


let me post it faster or the system decide to rebbot after i end it..
i need a gun or a priest to solve this problems

When you update from a systemto an other you just update the programs that THE SYSTEM KNOWS ! If there is something that the installer do not know it just let it as it is.

In other words -> if you have a unfunctionning win2K you obtain a unfunctionning winXP


You need an installation FROM SCRATCH.

Save you data, format the disk. I suggest you to do a 8GB partition C: that will host the system and keep the remainder of the disc for the data. That's what I do and this way I can ghost the system only and restore it when I need in 5 minutes (real) without wondering about my datas.

exact the way i have Phil!
maxtor 60GB (7200rpm) as master with 8GB for C: and the remainder to D: .
yes,... "no way out"... i will do from scratch like your recomendation. thanks!

the strange is that the 2k was installing over the 98SE that was working and the XP over that 2K.....the 98SE was working fine, i only update the system,nothing more...

The stangest thing is that M$ allows you to update from win98 to 2000. These are two branch of product completly separated.

win2000 is an evolution of winNT, not win 98 !

That is surely what screwed up your system.

why don't have a advice about that?
when you run the 2k cd you was only asked if you want to update.

you're right Phil, this is the reason!
before i format and reinstall everything, i will try to use my last ghost image from ME and install XP over that....."who knows"
thanks!
