Set your bios to boot to your CD and see if it will boot to the upgrade CD... it should. Then you won't have to do the other.

Single boot disk-All windows

Here is a boot disk that will install any windows operating system except NT, and includes W2000 and XP. Works great! Just boot with it in and answer a few questions, and it will install upto a desktop unattended. Partition and format included.

I'm with lonman, I find the best bootdisk is just the windows cd, in a few extreme cases it will refuse to boot, but then you can get the ultimate bootdisk which will allow you to fix a few things

and if your drivers aren't NTFS you can just use a old 98 bootdisk...if ya use a 98 bootdisk and you have ntfs drives it won't see them

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
