My first blog post for 2016.
This is a reminder blog post.
When your Windows 2003 boot up, you may see another a message like the below:
When you logged into Windows and examine the Event Viewer, you may see an error under System.
When you open up the error, you would see, the following error message:
Start a Windows command prompt and run the following command:
sc config parport start= disabled
Note the space after “start=” in the above command. It is required.
After you ran this command, you should not see the error message prompt on your next Windows bootup.
Note: This solution deviate from the one stated in the reference.
