Upgrading from Win95 or Win98 to Windows 2000
Posted on 2002-04-26
This week I asked the question about formatting my c: drive and doing a fresh install of Windows 98 to a computer that already had Windows 98 on it. Those step by step instructions from Joe worked perfectly. My question today is similar and I just wanted to verify with the experts before I proceed. I have two computers (one desktop & one laptop) and one of them has Windows 95 and the other has Windows 98. I would like to upgrade both of them to Windows 2000 Professional. I would like to format and install Windows 2000 Pro from scratch. I don't know if you can refer back to the instructions that were give to me to do the Windows 98 fresh install - but if you can I would like to know if I can follow those same instructions. I do know; however, that in the instructions given to me earlier this week I was told that after formatting the drive I needed to create a directory (c:\windows\cabs\) and copy the contents of the Win98 folder from the CD to this directory - but on Windows 2000 this folder should be WINNT ? I would appreciate any input you could give to me. Thank you!
