I haven't accomplished this feat with Windows 2000 yet. Here's why. The stock Windows 2000 CD can't prepare an 140GB drive. This issue is noted at http://48bitlba.com/
I have been able to make a slipstreamed Windows 2000 CD with SP4 and make an 127GB volume...
Best of luck,
I have a requirement,where i need to load windows 2000 in Dell computer. I have used bootable cd of windows 2000 to format the only partition available which is 140GB. Now once the copying of the files is done, the setup asked me to restart the machine, and as i did it ...no process starts after that...the monitor just shows the blank screen. Iam surprised,when i did this kind of installatio on other computer , the setup resumed after restarting. But here, setup is some how unable to resume..
I tried pressing F12 for boot options, and it gives the options like boot from the CD, hard Disc,etc..
i tried CD again, now setup process starts from the starting again...leaving me clueless, of whats going one...previously windows xp is present that came with Dell. now since my setup have formatted the only partiion present. the computer doesnt have any OS existing now...can some one suggest me ways to work around this problem..
thanks in advance.
