After installing Windows 2000 Server, your System Event log contains:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7022
Description: The Removable Storage service hung on starting.
This problem can be caused by a failure to completely install the Removable Storage service, or its' registry keys have become corrupted. The Removable Storage Manager (RSM) needs the %SystemRoot%\System32\NtmsData folder, and the service need the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtmsSvc registry key and sub-keys.
If you try to start the Removable Storage service manually, you receive a 1053 error code.
To fix this problem:
1. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the %Systemroot%\INF\Rsm.inf file.

4. Shutdown and restart the server.
