2 part EASY question: do i need 2000 or 2000 upgrade?
Posted on 2002-07-20
Hi. Simple question here.
Right now, I am running Windows 98 on my PC. It came with the PC, and I don't think I have the original disk or serial number or anything.
Anyway, I need to upgrade to Windows 2000- have to.
I went to Amazon.com and there are 2 products:
Windows 2000 Professional
Windows 2000 Professional Upgrade
Which do I buy? Will I need to prove registration of Windows 98 when and if I install the "upgrade"? I can't do that. In fact, I don't even think I have a "restore" disk for the computer. Thank God I've never had to re-format in 3 years.
Any insight is appreciated.
I've heard that some computers cannot be upgraded to Windows 2000- that 98 is burned into a partition permanently or something. Is there a way for me to find out if my computer has this "permanent" 98 thing?
Thanks a bunch!
