I have Windows XP installed on my laptop and I'm planning to uninstall XP & install Windows 2000 instead. When I try to boot my laptop with the W2K installation CD, I get the following message
I'm pretty sure that the CD is bootable (I tried it in my friend's PC and it could boot - his PC had W2K installed). There is no problem with my CD drive either, because I'm able to boot with Windows XP CD & with Knoppix CD.
My assumption is that, you can't boot with a disk which has a lower version of Windows than the one which is currently installed. Is my assumption correct?
If that is the case, how can I remove XP & install W2K?
To make things worse, I cannot use both floppy drive & CD drive in my laptop simultaneously. I have to plug one drive out to use the other.
Who says nothing is impossible? I've been doing nothing for years
