Hi,
First of all you will need to get hold of an XP install disk.
Once you have the disk pop it in the CD drive.
Now you have two choices, you can start the XP install from within the Windows 2000 operating system or you can do it from boot.

To install from boot restart the laptop. When you see the IBM logo appear repeatedly tap F1 and enter the BIOS. Look for "boot options" and set the CD (optical) drive as the first boot device. Save the changes and exit the BIOS.
The computer will restart and boot from the CD. If you see a message at the top of the screen that say's "press any key to boot from CD" press a key.
The install process will start and load certain boot files. All you have to do is follow the instructions on-screen.
Make sure you delete the partition that holds Windows 2000 and remember before you start the install to back up any data you need.


Regards.

Hello Coreymanis,

You need to purchase the windows XP CD to get the Genuine CD Key.
You can reinstall windows 2000 Professional if you have CD Key of it, but it needed the CD also. If your friend having the CD you can use that CD and use the CD key which you have.

I suggest not to install windows 2000 professional because this has been expired as per Microsoft and no support available in future.

Changing windows 4 to windows 2000 xp


First off, there is a big difference between windows 2000 and xp.
She needs her windows 2000 install disks and to re-install windows. Then she needs to install her service packs onto it. Either that or upgrade to windows xp. Id suggest she upgrade if she has decent hardware(memory, cpu and hard drive space)

There is no shortcut or work around unless you want to start using pirated stuff, which is probably not a good idea since most of that stuff is just an avenue for viruses and backdoor programs.

HOW TO INSTALL OFFICE 2007 ON WINDOWS 2000


Your solution makes no sense.
XP and 2000 are practically the same. The only reason Office 2007 doesn't work on XP is because someone at Microsoft has thought
"If we place some code in Office 2007 to prevent it running in Windows 2000, maybe people will buy XP or Vista to use it. Then we can make more money!"
That is the same with every Microsoft program that works on XP but not 2000.
It is a marketing ploy.
Someone help us find a way to get past this dirty profiteering trick.

Operating system


You can not upgrade to Windows 2000 server from windows XP Professional. All you can do is to purachase a copy of Windows 2000 server with as much as client license you want. And install it in your system on a sperate partition. Or you can install windows 2000 server after formatting your hard disk. This way you will loose any information on your computer. Installation instructions are available on the internet in the following link: http://www.petri.co.il/install_windows_2000.htm If you are using a simple stand alone machine, your current windows XP professional is the best choice according to my knowledge. All the best
