Simply place the Windows 2000 CD in the CD-Rom, then restart the computer..As long as the CD-Rom is set to boot first, the Windows installer will repartition, reformat, then install Windows. Follow the steps in the link below:
Windows 2000 Full Install on Used Hard Drive
Hope this helps.
I had Suse 10 on one of my computers. I wanted to also have win 2K installed. Everything I read said to install windows first. So I used a disk I got from Maxtor called MaxBLAST 4 to format the HD. When I tired to install win 2k it failed and I got the message "missing NTLDR" what ever that is. So ok I will put suse back on. That will not install, Fedora core 4 will not install, and PClinux live cd will not run. Suse will get to where it actives the usb card and stops. Fedora gets to "/sbin/loader" and stops. Pclinux get to the logo and stops. How do I get out of this mess I made?
