ohmy Operating System swap problem
  

Hello Everybody,

I was trying to bring back the life of my old Acer laptop. While doing so, i got stuck with a problem, when i was trying to reinstall the operating system on my Acer laptop. It had a pre-installed Windows Xp and i'm trying to install Windows 2000 pro on it. I don't have the disc so i just try to format my C drive, but it's not accepting anything on it. I tried everything according to my knowledge but didn't got any result. So do any one have any idea how can i resolve the above issue? Can any one provide me the correct logical solution for the above issue? Any kind of help would be appreciated.

Thanks is advance.

You can get XP upgrades but as you've heard, these don't always go smoothly Windows 2000 had its own problems & the last thing you want to do is to carry those problems over to your new Operating System, that's why a clean install is recommended. If you need to upgrade because of problems with Windows 2000 then back up your data & do a clean install.

Partition magic is the best option if you want to change the partition sizes on your laptop.

Borrow a Xp disc and then try to reformat the drive. Then use the code key of the sticker on your laptop , which you can see beneath your laptop.
