Not much you can do if you installed 2000 over your XP install. Had you installed 2000 do a different directory, then you probably wouldn't have this problem.

That's where you screwed up. I once wanted to dual boot with win 98 SE on my Rig 1, and overwrote all my files after it reformatted to Fat-32... I plan to dual boot on Rig 2 since I have multiple partitions set up.

Win 2k isnt that bad, it uses the same kernel as win xp, and its easy to use, in fact im using it on Rig 2 right now, with no problems. (Windows 2000 SP4 UR1)

You can't. Everything is stored in the "*:\\windows\\" folder, * being your drive. When you installed Win2k, it overwrote *:\\windows\\ and killed your registry and screwed up your XP kernel config. I'd recommend reformatting, repartitioning, and reinstalling both OSs now. I've had to reformat because of a stupid error like that many times, so don't feel bad.

But first, go into 2000, burn all your important stuff (My Documents, Huge Downloads, Photos, Etc.) to a cd/dvd, before you delete it all in a complete reformat.
