Would it be possible to install W2K on a PC leaving the existing Windows ME and all the rest intact? There is enough space on the HD.
Thanks in advance

Hi keithbraithwaite,

If you have more than one harddisk, or more than one partition. Just install windows 2000 on the other partition/drive. A bootmenu will be automatically created.

Greetings,

... and if there isn't already a second partition? Can I create one without reformatting and without losing all the existing data?

I'll have a look at all those tools. Thanks.
At first sight they seem to talk about extending existing partitions rather than actually creating two on an existing non-partitioned hard disk without losing existing data.

I've had a long look at the article on creating a double boot as well. Thanks for all that.

I'll let you know if anything works
All the best
