HAVE WIN ME AND WONDERING ABOUT DUAL BOOT WITH WIN2K I NEED HELP AND A LITTLE INSIGHT ABOUT THE PROCESS AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY CURRENT PROGRAMS MY HARD DRIVE AND ETC.
have u installed the other system yet?
Well if u have not then u can use partition magic to do so, and if u partitioned 2 different drives for each system then when start ur computer , it will ask which OS u wanna go to..
and i dont think anything will happed to ur programs on the first OS, that is if u dont delete the first OS , so make sure u have two different partitions for the OSes.
I dont know if this will help but I hope it does..
Ok here goes.... please jump in if i miss a step
1 do a defrag
2 creat a new partition on you HD
3 Install the win2k on the new partition
4 Install the desired programs in 2k
Hey that was easier then I thought.
Your existing programs in ME will still be there but if you want to use them in win2k you'll have to install them in win2k and make sure that they're win2k compatible. You can't use programs installed on other partitions with different OS's on them.
