  • Need to Uninstall 2000pro and keep xp?????

    I had 2000 pro on my computer. I then installed xp pro .I really didn't figure it would be a big deal to uninstall 2000 .Can somebody tell me how to do this?

    So I'm assuming at the moment you have a "Dual Boot" screen which allows you to select between Windows 2000 and Windows XP. You have a C:\Windows folder with Windows XP in it, and a D:\WINDOWS (or similar) with Windows 2000 in it.

    All you have to do is delete D:\WINDOWS and edit C:\BOOT.INI to remove any reference to Windows 2000.

    There isn't any real "uninstall" process as it were.


    I would be tempted to take this opportunity to save all your data somewhere (including your profile and favourites etc), format your C: drive and start again from scratch; otherwise you may find problems "stuff" later on. It's up to you and I'm not saying you WILL have problems; it would be my approach however because I prefer to be CERTAIN.
