upgrading win 2000 to win XP
Posted on 2006-07-23
Due to some applications needing xp I am forced to consider upgrading from win 200 professional sp4 to XP.
Have studied the various answers on EE and I have the following results:
You can upgrade to XP I do it all the time.
You cannot upgrade se article ......(whatever it is). The artcle has a table which shows the possible upgrades and 200 is a no-no.
I have win2000 up and running all the latest bells and whistles, put the new XP disk in and I get message Upgrade from Win2K professional to XP professional is not supported.
Tried going through it once, install install, and it started to create a XP folder on the drive.
Which of the 2 EE statements is correct can I upgrade the win2k to XP??
Is the ordinary disc required, there is no win2K to XP upgrade disk.
