I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?

Greetings

Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

First, I would like to start off saying that I have skimmed Reuel's website and printed the pages for reading. I have downloaded Reuel's Boot Disk, have a Windows 98 startup disk (several, actually), and have backed up all data to zip disks.

I am currently running Windows 98 and would like to install Windows 2000 for dual boot situation. Reuel's instructions seem very complete but I just want to be very careful to do everything correctly.

I have 2 drives:
Drive 1 = 3GB
Drive 2 = 6GB
Neither are partitioned at this moment. Would it be wise to partition Drive 2 into two 3GB partitions (one NTFS and one FAT32) or some other combination.
I would like to keep Windows 98 on drive 1 (though I will be formatting and installing from scratch) unless someone advises against it.

I guess what I'm looking for are suggestions. I don't want step by step procedures for completing this task - just something to get my mind on its way.

Any help appreciated! Thanks!

Hi all.

I am having a slight problem with a reinstall of windows 2000 on my portege p4000. Everything seems to work fine except for the wireless. All the drivers are in and there is nothing in the device manager that is listed as sans driver, the wireless client shows a connection to my router, but ipconfig indicates that there is no connection at all.

Could it be that I have installed the drivers and utilities in the wrong order? I would use my recovery cds, but they are damaged.

Does anyone know the correct order to install the drivers or where I can get this information?

Many thanks,

Rob.

A:Driver install on Portege 4000 with Windows 2000 Pro

Hello Rob

Installations order is important for several things but not for WLAN driver installation. I presume in your case there is no problem with WLAN driver.

Have you tried to configure WLAN using Windows WLAN options? Anyway there must be some connectivity problem. Have you tried to restart your router?

Unfortunately, Cirrus Logic no longer makes drivers, and the internet link to Ambient doesn't have any windows 2000 compatible drivers on it. Does anyone know where I might find the driver I need?

Help!

I am trying to set up a simple router using a Win2K server with two NICs.

I think the problem I am having may be related to the configuration of the 2nd physical NIC.

What do I enter for the 'gateway' and 'DNS settings?

Is there a good 'How-to' for doing this?

One NIC is 192.168.0.254 (main network), and the other is 192.168.10.250 (test network).

I can ping both networks from the server.

I cannot ping to either network from the other. When I try to ping from the test network to the main network, I get a strange message:

'Reply from 152.xxx.xxx.xxx', Destination Host Unreachable'.

Where did this IP come from?? It isn't from either of my local private networks, or my ISP (our WAN IP address is 208.61.155.188.

I admit I have no experience setting up a router, but I didn't think a simple static route would be this difficult. I must be missing something obvious.

Thanks for any help anyone can give...

A:{Advice Offered} - snmp on windows 2000

To be honest, I had no idea... so I went to Networking And Dial-UP Connections, selected my Network card, went to properties, clicked on install and had a look at the services I could install... Hmmm no SNMP.

So, I then went to Start / Help (horror of horrors!!)

Clicked on the contents tab, clicked on Networking and there was a page called "Installing SNMP". I did not even have to do a search for it.

This is what it has to say:

To install the SNMP service<ol>
[*] Open the Windows Components wizard. (Start / Settings / Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs / Add/Remove Windows Components)

[*] In Components, click Management and Monitoring Tools (but do not select or clear its check box), and then click Details.

[*] Select Simple Network Management Protocol check box, and click OK.

[*]Click Next.

Hmmm... that was simple enough

I'm running 2000 on a seperate partition with dual-boot capabilities between it and Win98. I wouldn't recommend replacing your Win98 with it, as there are still too many programs and devices out there that won't run in Win2K, yet. Check the <A href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/upgrade/default.asp">MS WIN2K Upgrade</a> site for more info, and a compatibility check that will tell you what you currently have that won't work with 2K.

A large majority of the games will work fine in 2K, but I've read of some that won't.

Hiya

Trust relationships are created between Windows NT or Windows 2000
domains to allow users in one domain to access resources in other
domains without requiring them to authenticate separately to each
domain. When a user in a trusted domain requests access to a resource
in a trusting domain, the trusted domain supplies authorization data
in the form of a list of Security Identifiers (SIDs) that indicate
the user's identity and group memberships. The trusting domain uses
this data to determine whether to grant the user's request.

A vulnerability exists because the trusting domain does not verify
that the trusted domain is actually authoritative for all the SIDs in
the authorization data. If one of the SIDs in the list identified a
user or security group that is not in the trusted domain, the
trusting domain would accept the information and use it for
subsequent access control decisions. If an attacker inserted SIDs of
his choice into the authorization data at the trusted domain, he
could elevate his privileges to those associated with any desired
user or group, including the Domain Administrators group for the
trusting domain. This would enable the attacker to gain full Domain
Administrator access on computers in the trusting domain.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

Sounds like a DNS error. Check your DNS records, make sure the ip for your mail server is set to the name of the server properly. You also need an mx record in the DNS settings pointing to the mail server.

Hiya

An SMTP service installs by default as part of Windows 2000 server
products. Exchange 2000, which can only be installed on Windows 2000,
uses the native Windows 2000 SMTP service rather than providing its
own. In addition, Windows 2000 and Windows XP workstation products
provide an SMTP service that is not installed by default. All of
these implementations contain a flaw that could enable denial of
service attacks to be mounted against the service.

The flaw involves how the service handles a particular type of SMTP
command used to transfer the data that constitutes an incoming
mail. By sending a malformed version of this command, an attacker
could cause the SMTP service to fail. This would have the effect
of disrupting mail services on the affected system, but would not
cause the operating system itself to fail

What happens is that I can install and run Windows 2000 on a 4GB disk which is one of three. The other two are 4GB (Windows 98) 17GB (Red Hat Linux 6.2). Windows 98 is protected by System Commander. I boot into Linux with a floppy. The scsi disks are controlled by an adeptec controller which allows me to change the lun boot options in order to select the OS that I want to boot. Windows 2000 is on lun 0, Windows 98 on lun 5 and Linux is on lun 6. Initially when I have installed Windows 2000 on lun 0 I can shut the machine down and restart it again OK and Windows 2000 will boot up OK. However if I switch my luns using the boot option on the Adeptec controller to one of the other two operating systems (which work OK) and then go back to lun 0 and try to boot Windows 2000 from the hard drive I get a failure message saying "No active partition found on HDD/ Please insert boot disk and hit a key"

I think you will find that the boot.ini is a hidden file. If you show all files, then you should be able to see it in the root of your active partition.

I installed a simple peer-to-peer network using Win 2000 Pro workstations, with an NT Server 4.0 machine acting only as a firewall. I have not set any password protection on any machine and all users have full administrative access to all resources on the network. However,when I try to browse for available resources I must enter a password and user name to have access to the machine in which the desired resources are located. How do I disable this password protection so that I am not confronted with a windows logon dialog box? I am using Fat32 on shares, therefore there is no local file security.
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 browser access problem

All users have full access you said. Did you set up the names that people are logging into the workstations with up in User Manager on each machine?

You are actually logging into the NT Server at the beginning of all this, right?

Hiya

The Telnet protocol provides remote shell capabilities. Microsoft has
implemented the Telnet protocol by providing a Telnet Server in
several products. The implementations in two of these products
- - - Windows 2000 and Interix 2.2 - contain unchecked buffers in the
code that handles the processing of telnet protocol options.

An attacker could use this vulnerability to perform a buffer
overflow attack. A successful attack could cause the Telnet Server
to fail, or in some cases, could possibly allow an attacker to
execute code of her choice on the system. Such code would execute
using the security context of the Telnet service, but this context
varies from product to product. In Windows 2000, the Telnet service
always runs as System; in the Interix implementation, the
administrator selects the security context in which to run as part
of the installation process.
Affected Software:

Telnet Service in Microsoft Windows 2000
Telnet Daemon in Microsoft Interix 2.2

Hi


I have just built a Windows 7 machine and am having lots of problems

I can't run windows update which outputs error messages - have followed all the fixes for this to no success

I get BSOD constantly whenever I try to do anything

The system is all new apart from the GPX card (full spec below)

AMD Bulldozer FX-4 Quad Core
Asus M5A99x motherboard
8 GB (2x4) Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey DDR3
Sapphire Radeon HD4870 1GB PCIe (moved over from old PC)
1 x OCZ Vertex II Bigfoot 120GB SSD (OS and program drive)
1 x Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD (file storage only)
Rane TTM57SL USB soundcard
730W BeQuiet PSU


The system is a fresh build yesterday with NOTHING installed on any of the drives apart from:

Motherboard drivers
Windows OS - 7 x64 Ultimate SP1
Windows updates (up to a point - 8 of them can't install)
Serato Scratch Live software and drivers for the TTM57SL
AVG Antivirus Free

I have attached a zip of dump file and report

Any help would be massively appreciated

A:BSOD when trying to run windows update / install driver / install s/w

One, your AVG.
I notice your AVG which is often at least a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace your AVG with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Invalid RDP Data can Cause Terminal Service Failure

The implementation of the Remote Data Protocol (RDP) in the terminal
service in Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 does not correctly handle
a particular series of data packets. If such a series of packets
were received by an affected server, it would cause the server to
fail. The server could be put back into normal service by rebooting
it, but any work in progress at the time of the attack would be
lost.

It would not be necessary for an attacker to be able to start a
session with an affected server in order to exploit this
vulnerability - the only prerequisite would be the need to be able
to send the correct series of packets to the RDP port on the server.

Affected Software:

Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Server

Removed the URL as the patch is corrupted, according to Microsoft.

The Windows 2000 is the corrupt one. WinNT is here:

Hiya

This is for Windows XP, but as its so near to the other date, I thought I'd tag it along here instead of creating anew thread.

AMD Power Now availability in XP

On mobile AMD Athlon 4 processors, AMD offers a technology called PowerNow! that controls your notebook computer's level of processor performance by dynamically adjusting its operating frequency and voltage according to the task at hand. At release, Windows XP Home and Professional Editions did not have the ability to take advantage of the AMD PowerNow! functionality. Laptop computers with the AMD Athlon 4 processor do not have the improved battery performance that is offered by the PowerNow! technology.

I had updated the Windows 10 April Update on my Thinkpad X230. I use Bitlocker to encrypt C, D disks. Before update Windows, I suspended Bitlocker function on C, update all newest drivers downloaded from Lenovo for Thinkpad X230 (BIOS, Firmware, ...). After update Windows 10, I can use my laptop in some hours, then I shutdown it. However, from this time, I cannot boot Windows, it only boot on some seconds and automatically turn off. I use USB Windows to go to boot my laptop, then turn off Bitlocker in C drive, and I can boot and use my Thinkpad. Unfortunately, when I turn on Bitlocker again, my Thinkpad X230 cannot boot again. Any idea for me? Please don't tell me turn off Bitlocker.
