win2000 & xp



I got xp currently running on the primary C: drive. I intend to install win2000 on the other partition, D: drive so that I can have a dual booting. The problem is, when I try to install win2000, it's disabling the "install win2000" option and saying that u got a better vesion already. How can I go about this.


You always need to install the oldest operating system on c: drive first. You now have two choices:

Reformat and install 2K first or

Use a third party utility such as Partition Magic 7.0 which should be able to do what you want without having to reformat.


Try booting from the Win2k cd, then choosing partition...

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!
