I think i already know the answer.. My machine is running XP i have the hard drive partitioned Into 2 drives I used to have a dual boot with XP and 2000 but i got rid of 2000. Now i want the dual boot back.. Can I installl 2000 without losing any data?? I know how to create the dual boot normally but i dont' want to lose the data i have on the machine now??

Any suggestions???

If you still have the partition available, you can simply install Windows 2000 back onto that partition. If you don't have the partition available, simply use Partition Magic to make it again (you won't loose any data) and then reinstall to that partition.

XpGuy,

from the forum guidelines:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
