After you install IomegaWare 2.0 version software on your computer, you may receive the following error message on a blue screen:
STOP 0x000000c2 BAD_POOL_CALLER (0x00000007, 0x00000B68, 0xe232D700, 0xe232d708)
The parameters that follow the error message may vary.
This behavior can occur because the device drivers that are included with some versions of IomegaWare are not compatible with Windows 2000.
To resolve this behavior, start the Recovery Console, and then disable the IomegaWare driver:
  1. Insert Windows 2000 Setup Disk 1 into your floppy disk drive or, if you have a bootable CD-ROM drive, insert the Windows 2000 CD into your CD-ROM drive.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Follow the directions on the screen. If you use the Setup floppy disks, you are prompted to insert the other Setup disks. Loading files may take several minutes. Specify the options to repair your Windows 2000 installation and to start the Recovery Console.
  4. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type listsvc, and then press ENTER. One of the services in the resulting list should be Iomegnt.
  5. At the command prompt, type disable Iomegnt, and then press ENTER.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. When a prompt asks you to select the operating system that you want to start, press F8.
  8. Use the ARROW keys to highlight Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
  9. Use the ARROW keys to highlight an operating system, and then press ENTER.
