I am having problems with Windows 2000. How do I re-install W2000 ? I have the Original W2000 CD. Thanks for detailed instructions.

Have tried searching for this oft-repeated request and admit I can't find one so far.

Briefly what you propose will clear everything off your drive C: so make sure you have all installation disks and have copies of your data.

Go to your BIOS and set it to boot from your CD.

Reboot your computer with the Windows CD in place.

Type FORMAT C: (This will wipe ALL the old stuff)

Reboot as before and Type SETUP

Follow the prompts and when the new Win2000 is running, shut down and reset the Bios to boot from your HD.

Then you can have fun reinstalling all your peripheral drivers and applications.
