...without creating a NFTS (or whatever is the exact acronym)
I had my installation files copied on my hard drive, thought it would speed up the installation, but when i'm starting the DOS install program, it says the hard-drive is not Windows 2000 compatible. I do NOT want to create a new partition or format my hard-drive just to please a new OS. How can i do ?
Would it be because the files are located on /windows/desktop/ and it wouldn't want to touch the windows directory ?
(i would have used the CD, but it fell on the ground and the lovely cats were playing, and now there's a big lovely ray that makes it unreadable)
-Copy the files to a folder on the C: drive, like C:\TEMP\
-Copy the files to another CD-ROM (if you've a CD-writer) and install Win2k from it.
When doing an Upgrade the first part of setup should be Windows-based - did you get this? If not, you need to run the "winnt32.exe" file in the i386 folder from the CD. In a full install you would run the "winnt.exe" file in that folder.
