well you should just boot to ME, insert 2000 cd and just upgrade it. i think that should work just fine.

Upgrading from a dos based OS to an NT based OS is rarely a good idea. Much better off with a fresh install.

if ypu can't do a clean install, just uninstall norton av especially, but any av, and then you should be fine.

the av's are usally what causes the issue on any upgrade problems.

always best to clean install, but if it's impossible, uninstall any av's

Well the issue is that MS designs their OS's so that older ones will see there is a newer version and won't install after the newer version. Older OS's need to be installed first, and dos based OS's need to be install first in the root of the boot drive. Of course, third party utilities such as Partition Magic (actually Boot Magic) provide a way around this.

In this case, however, the DOS OS is already installed in C: root so I believe he can perform the upgrade. It's an excellent question though yoyo.

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
