There is no upgrade path from Windows ME to Windows 2000. You would have to reformat the hard drive to remove ME before you install Windows 2000 from scratch.
You cannot perform an upgrade install from Windows ME to Windows 2000. Windows 2000 was actually released before Windows ME, and thus will not accept it as a valid upgrade target. You must format the hard drive and install a full version of Windows 2000 if you want to replace Windows ME.
Yes, you can. Split the disk in at least 2 partitions. First install Windows 2000 on disk C and then install Windows 7 on the disk D. You can install Windows 2000 on disk D and then Windows 7 on disk C. But the order of installation must be preserved.
Yes, you can.
No. Upgrades are only supported from Windows XP. You would need to do a clean install to upgrade from 98, ME, or 2000.
It is no longer possible to purchase a new desktop with Windows 2000.
Create two partitions in ur hard drive and install Windows '98 on Drive C and install Windows 2000 on Drive D to another partition.
I suggest that you DON'T do this for certain reasons... for example: there are newer 3d chips.
Best way is to copy off the files you want, then format the drive and install WIndows 2000 from scratch. It always works far better that way than to try to do an Upgrade from one OS to another.
Windows 98 uses an older technology based on DOS, Windows 2000 is based on the NT Kernel. Sometimes Windows NT OS's don't work right with old dos files.With a clean install, you get a fresh start. With an upgrade, problems with applications or the OS may follow you into the new load.Install off of your Windows 2000 CD and then have Windows search for your Win 98 CD when it checks for valid upgrade path.
No special action is needed. Windows 2000 supports APM (Advanced Power Management).
A clean install that overwrites the existing installation has some advantages; one advantage is that you get a fresh start. If you erase everything (format the hard drive), then you are assured that the registry, as well as all applications, are as clean as possible.
Always Install Windows 2000 by formatting your root drive. Otherwise you will face a lot of problems Regards Nauman
Windows 2000 will automatically use the FAT32 file system
Set the primary partition containing Windows XP to active
Yes Just Run both the install and program with Compatability to do this right click one the program not the shortcut and go to compatability and check it and scroll down to windows 2000 or windows XP Service Pack 2
Windows 95 can be directly upgraded by Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000. Later versions of Windows (assuming the hardware is suitable) can only be installed with a clean install.
you must reformat the drive XP is on-Then install 2000 as a new OS. Because it is a downgrade-not reformatting the drive will cause XP to not allow the downgrade.
yes, install the proper printer driver.. it works both 2000 professional and server..
A very large number of the programs that will run on Windows XP will also run on Windows 2000, unless otherwise specified. A comprehensive list isn't really possible.
If you plan to install windows 2003 server domain controllers into an existing windows 2000 domain or upgrade a windows 2000 domain controllers to windows server 2003, you first need to run the Adprep.exe utility on the windows 2000 domain controllers currently holding the schema master and infrastructure master roles. The adprep / forestprer command must first be issued on the windows 2000 server holding schema master role in the forest root doman to prepare the existing schema to support windows 2003 active directory. The adprep /domainprep command must be issued on the sever holding the infrastructure master role in the domain where 2000 server will be deployed
Windows 2000 has no native support for SATA drives. If you have a slipstreamed CD with service pack 4, and the drivers for the SATA controller, you can install it. If not, you will have to run the SATA controller in emulation mode, so that Windows 2000 thinks that it is an IDE drive.
