Upgrading W2K Prof 'in place' for dual core support
Posted on 2007-03-29
I want to upgrade my tired single-cpu hardware for a dual-core m/b & cpu, which is running W2K Prof w/ SP 4. What I don't want to do is install from scratch, as I have way too many apps that I'd have a hard time finding (some CDs, some software downloads, etc.). Is there a way to reinstall W2K Prof over the existing system and have it upgrade to a multi-core HAL w/o reinstalling everything?
The W2K CD I have would have been the original CD, so the service pack upgrades wouldn't be on it.
