Upgrade from Hard Disk

Hello

I would like to upgrade from Windows 2000 Server to Windows 2003 Server without using the CDROM (upgrade fom hard disk) because im having issues with installing from CDROM. Do i have to move I386 folder somwhere or something. Would appreciate some instructions.

Thanks and Regards

Daniel

I think you only need the i386 folder, but to be safe, I would just copy the entire cd to folder, and then run the setup from Windows, and follow the upgrade instructions that way.

I would replace the CDROM (<$20), After it reboots and starts loading system and configuration its going to look for the CD.

not true, because for example when you run dell server setup software, it copies the 2003 OS and any other os install locally to the drive first, and then performs the install

Okay I will try copying the Contents of a CD to a folder and then running the installation from there. Will let you now how it goes. It is not a CD issue as it is occuring with various copies and edititions. It's more of a hrdware compatibility issue with my CDROM and SCSI hard disks I believe.
