Hello Private672, Hi, If you have no important documents on the HDD or has been back up already, the full hdd size can be edited when you install another windows on it. there is a portion in the installation where you can delete and edit the partition. There are other free software utility on the internet for downloads to edit and low level your hard drive to get back the full size. among these are Partition Magic, Disk Manager. do a google search

* It is not necessary to back up ur data. U can simply run the Windows 7 upgrade, it will not delete ur files and folders. It will only replace the windows and system files.

** If u want to back up ur data then simply copy ur all data to another partition except C drive (System Drive) and then install a fresh copy of windows 7 and by format only c partition.

*** If there is only a single partition, then simply copy all your necessary data to CD/DVD aur pen drive aur any external hard drive and install a fresh copy.

**** U can also use Partition Magic to make two partition by cutting some space from C drive in case of only one partition.

Hello I have 1 TB WD my hard drive it don't show up on my computer but say its working


You will need to partition and format the drive before it can be accessed as a separate drive letter.

If you are using Windows XP, Click Start -> Run

Type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter

Locate the newly installed drive (Disk 1, Disk 2 etc), right click and select New -> Partition. Follow the onscreen instructions to format the partition.

When completed, you will find the drive in My Computer as a separate drive

The following guide will provide more details:

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!
Mike

What is the boot order in the BIOS? Set that to 1=FDD 2=CD-ROM 3=HDD
While the PC is still on, put the Windows CD in the drive
Restart the PC, watch the screen for a prompt to boot from cd - press a key
The installation will start, you will need to choose where to install Windows
If you do not need to save any data, format the C: drive and install window there.
Follow the prompts the rest of the way through the installation.
You will need to enter the Windows License code at some point.
It is a good idea to change the regional settings to match your location and how you want the date and time formatted.
Most things should be detected and installed automatically, so you are safe to accept the defaults.
After about 45 minutes you will need to restart the PC and then you should be ready to enjoy Windows 2000.
Be sure to go to Windows Update and install all of the patches.

Good Luck and let me know how it goes.

Hi,
That's not a virus. Boot.ini is a default file needed for Windows OS to boot.
Fortunately, you can recreate the boot.ini files

This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file with a previous installation of Windows 2000 on a separate partition. [boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Simple way to add operating system on a separate partition:
At the command prompt, type: bootcfg /copy /d Operating System Description /ID# Where Operating System Description is a text description (e.g. Windows XP Home Edition), and where # specifies the boot entry ID in the operating systems section of the BOOT.INI file from which the copy has to be made.

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
