I've tested the following successfully with Windows 2000 SP2 german, HPFS and HPFS386. I can't promise that this will work on your system, too. This is a dangerous procedure, so backup your whole system before you apply this patch.

Someone sent me a mail, he told me that this only works if the HPFS partition is smaller than 8GB.

Use it at your own risk

  1. Download hpfsw2k.zip download
  2. Unzip hpfsw2k.zip and copy RS.DLL and patched PINBALL.SYS to /WINNT/SYSTEM32/DRIVERS
  3. Enter the information from hpfs.reg (included in hpfsw2k.zip) into the registry (just doubleclick it)
  4. Reboot
  5. Mount your HPFS volumes
