What is the 'Enable Boot Logging' option in Windows 2000?
The 'Enable Boot Logging' option is one among the advanced safe mode booting options available in Windows operating systems. In Windows 2000 also, a user can select the 'Enable Boot Logging' option from the 'Safe Mode' booting menu. The booting option would create the logs on the system as the 'ntbootlog.txt' file. The file would contain the details about the problems affecting the system startup. Thus, the user can troubleshoot the issue with the system devices and drivers according to the log. The user can also use the log as a comparison medium for the purpose of identifying the issues. The log file would be present at the system root folder. Boot logging is enabled by default while the user starts the system in any of the Safe Mode options except the 'Last Known Good Configuration' option.
