Win2k General Protection Fault during startup :(
Ok...the darn knowledge base on mircopoops website is usually pretty helpful. But this GPF is weird. Its a HP computer for one. And I took out all the expansion cards and even changed out the ram (this is a customers computer at my work by the way ). ANyway, after the POST screen and right as its about to go startup Win2k it gives me a GPF with a bunch of #'s and no real point to a specific file or anything. At the top it says
"Trap 0000000D =========General Protection Fault======="
Then it gives a bunch of this = #s stuff (like tr = 0028 and errcode = 4E00) and also says "NoCy NoZr InitDis Down TrapDis"
Who knows if anyone will know what those mean but worth a try. Just wondering if I dont have to reinstall damn Win2k. Thanks for any info guys...

Ok, this is the best I'm coming up with so far:
It's NT3.51, maybe connected?

That's about all I can find, everything I can find on this problem seems to be attached to NT.

Are you able to get into safe mode? Have you tried booting off a emergency repair disk? Sometimes it easier to let these tools do their job than to try to track down the true source of the error. Especially one that is as cryptic as that.

The repair disk is excellent...fixed it right up no problems at all Strange how it even became corrupt in the first place...OHHH WELL!!! Not my computer so Im not too worried

...but what if you don't have an ERD? Y'all saved my butt - here's how to fix this without an ERD (cause mine was corrupt - shame on me): The trap is caused by corrupt or missing boot loader files. You have to restore them from the Win2k CD. Here's how: Boot from your Win2K CD, and when asked, press R to repair. Then, choose the repair process by pressing R again. Then, choose the Manual option. At the next screen, leave everything selected. The process will scan your HD, etc. and then start asking you to repair files that are "not in the orig. Win2K installation" If you've been service packing, this will be just about everything.
You don't have to go through this whole thing. Don't let it repair All files automatically - step through it manually because you only care about 4 files: arcldr.exe, arcsetup.exe, ntdetect.com, and ntldr. After those files have been restored from the CD, you can bail out of the setup program and reboot - you should be fine.
Now, go re-servicepack your Win2k install and make 4 emergency repair disks. Mail them to your friends and put one in a safety deposit box. That way you're covered.
