OK so I tried installing Win 2000 on a partition along side with XP. The problem is, after I installed 2000 and I tried booting into XP, I got an error saying /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/SYSTEMd/(or something like that) could not be found. So I was like "ok, I'll just reinstall windows xp and fix it." The only problem is, if I do that, I'll lose everything in the My Documents folder. I tried getting into the user folder under documents and settings but got an access denied error. I tried using cacls on it but still no luck. I even tried creating a BackupOperator user in 2000 then using cacls and it still wouldn't let me in. Then I tried making the same username in 2000 and tried to get in but I guess since its to different SAMs it won't work. Does anyone have any alternative methods for retrieving the files, or I am screwed?
