    What version of Windows 2000 are you running? You posted on the SERVERS forum. Is it Windows 2000 Server? Then no, you CANNOT upgrade. Backup, format, reinstall XP.

    If you're using Windows 2000 Professional, then you're banned for not posting on the right forum.

      Yes, upgrade is only possible from W2K Pro. You can't install XP over W2K Server.
