How did you install 2000 if windows XP was already loaded? Is it on another drive?

Hi, make 2000 your primary and only drive to start with. Don't connect your second drive until 2000 is fully set up. Then connect XP drive as Slave and re-format the slave drive. I am no expert but that is what I would try.

how did you 'install' the 2000 on the pirated XP?
