Installing Win2K on WinMe machine - Questions
Posted on 2001-06-15
I have a Dell Dimension 4100 with Win Me. I recently installed Win2K (clean install). Now, at start up, I can choose the OS to boot with.
I have some questions -
1. Win 2K detected the monitor as "Default Monitor". I can't see how to change it to the Dell Monitor (E770). I don't see the monitor in Device Manager. On Right-click on desktop - Properties - Settings - Advanced - Monitor, the "Properties" button is disables. I know that that's where I can change the driver.
2. I see that all the directories that were there under Win Me can be accessed from Win 2K too, but can't run the programs that were installed on Win Me. For example, I have a directory "MSOffice" where I have Office installed. If I re-install it from Win 2K into the same directory, will it work from both OS's ?
Thank you for the help.
