View Full Version : Instaling Win 2k on 2nd HD



25-03-2002, 02:49 PM
I wish to install a second OS, (Win 2k) on a 2nd HD so that I can make a clean install of my major apps. I then intend to make an image file of that drive with Ghost. Sofar I have formated the drive and installed Win 98 se and attempted to upgrade to Win 2k. That's when I get a message to tell me that I can't install a second OS. Now I can't access my working HD where all my aps are installed. I have been looking at Boot Managers to try to get to my working HD. Thanks in advance for any help.

What os is on your main HDD?

Why have you installed 98se on the second HDD, then tried to upgrade? Why didn't you just do a clean install of W2k on the second HDD?

Just trying to get a clearer picture of what is happening here.

You are right of course, I have now done a clean install and now have W2k on one partition of C: and W98SE on another and can dual boot to that drive. Now all I have to figure out is how to get to my D: drive.
