  • Boot to the xp cd
  • After the setup installs then it will ask if you want to install xp, repair or install to another partition.
  • Choose install and the install program will say that it is inspecting and looking for previous Windows.
  • The dialogue will now say that a previous Windows is installed and to choose whether you wish to install on the same partition -you do not, delete that partition -you do. I think it is "D" to delete, then "L" on the next Window.
  • When you see the next screen it will list the partitions. Notice the "unpartitioned" disk space -that is where you want to install the new Windows.
  • It should be all or most of your hard drive space. If there are other partitions delete those as well unless there is a relatively small partition, say 4 or 8 gigabytes partition that may have information stored for the hard drive itself to use for it's own purposes.
  • When you have the unpartitioned space maximized by deleting the existing Windows you be asked if you want to format the drive in NTFS, Fat32 or leave intact or quick format.
  • Choose NTFS, full format (slow) and let the format begin.
  • When complete it will reboot automatically or you can reboot yourself.
  • After reboot the Windows driver load and inspection will repeat but this time you will have a formatted partition. Choose that for your new install of Windows. After that is complete reboot to your hard drive, not the cd. You can remove the cd if you want to make sure you are booting to the hard drive but the new Windows installation may ask that you reinsert the cd as it loads drivers and so on. At this point have any other cds available for installing drivers for printers, video cards, network adaptors and so on. If you do not have them then download the Windows 2000 drivers to a thumb drive or cd before you do this install.
  • Windows has program compatibility program that inspects or lists what devices might not be compatible with Windows 2000. Also the manufacturer can tell you what Windows versions they can support. Here is a comprehensive list of Microsoft downloads for Windows 2000. Make sure that you have service pack 4 downloaded to cd or thumbdrive.

  • Take you time and let me know if there are any problems encountered. I am certified for Windows 2000 Pro OS and networking. ~Steve Medley
