Please HELP -> STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} on Win2k Advanced Server!!!

Post by <zis.. » Sat, 13 May 2000 04:00:00



I setup Windows 2000 Advanced Server on a Pentium III based PC with the
following configuration:

Motherboard: Abit VA6 with Award 4.50 Bios
CPU: Pentium III 667MHz (133MHz memory)
Memory: 384 MB
SCSI Host Adapter: Adaptec AHA2940U2W Bios version 2.20
SCSI disk: Quantum Atlas IV 9GB
CDROM: Asus 50x
Network Card: Intel Pro+/100 network adapter
Backup Device: HP Colorado 8BG
Floppy 1.44, mouse
Video Display: S3 Trio3d/2x 8Mb

I have the following problem: There is a big probability when the system
goes up and just before the login screen, to stop with the following message
(in a blue screen):

STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writeable.

This happens 1 of 3  times i reboot or restart the PC. The Win2000
installation was a clean installation.

1) Can anyone suggest anything?

Best Regards
