Where to install?
Posted on 2006-04-04
just got through my windows 2003 server standard CD's and i have come accross a small problem. I current have a server that is very problematic,. so instead of upgrading, i want to completely remove windows 2000 and install a fresh version of 2003 server.
The server has 3 drives:
c: 8 gig (where windows 2000 is currently installed)
e: 17 gig
f: 62 gig
i want to install the 2003 installation on the 17 gig hard drive, but have it as hard drive C:. is this possible?
stupidly, i have already started and installation, and i don't think i've done it properly. I inserted the windows 2003 CD into the machine, and selected to install fresh copy rather than upgrade. once it rebooted, it asked me where i wanted to save the OS, and i selected the 17 gig hard drive, and i deleted the partition and then reformatted it in NTFS. The system will now dual boot won't it? how do i get it so that i remove 2000, and have it boot up in 2003 and have drive C (the windows partition) as the 17 gig hard drive?
