I have a machine I inherited running 2000 Server. I'm finding out it probably isn't legal, but since I have 2003 licenses I want to upgrade it anyway.
I demoted it fine. It's only running one app I care about (Subversion).
Problem is, It's 2000 Advanced Server. Only upgrade path is to 2003 Enterprise Server and I dont own that (just 2003 Server Standard and SBS).
What do I have to do to get this machine running 2003 Server?
I'm mostly concerned about
A) A HD controller that requires a custom driver to deal with one of it's HD's.
B) The 60 gigs of data on the 2nd HD attached to the controller on an NTFS partition. I don't want to have to restore a backup. Ideally it will stay right where it is.
I don't care about an "upgrade". I'll reinstall what I need. I just don't want to have to repartition/reformat/restore.
