Hi.
I am thinking about upgrading to a new O/S (XP is my choice)
2k is what I use. The game plan is a new HDD 500 gig With XP on one partition with win 2k pro on other (a dual boot), as this will be a new drive can I create this partition with the XP disk once it installed.
regards

You create as you install, is done from the setup disk

You need to load win 2k first if you want to use XP's boot loader. Only problem will be that 2k might just see only 137Gb of the disk.

When you install XP with sp2? it will see the remainder of the drive.
