I have a Win XP computer but wish to possibly have 2 operating systems on it. I am trying to install Win 2000 while the current OS of Win XP is on and running on the machine. I have heard this is possible with copying both the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files onto a floppy BEFORE the Win 2000 install and then recopying back to the root directory of my boot drive.
Now, when I insert the Win 2000 disc I receive an error:
"This CD-Rom is from an older version of windows that the one you are presently using.
Setup functionality from this disk will be disabled."
How can I get around this error?
Is installing Win 2000 after Win XP is on the machine very safe?
I have an old program I need to use on this machine which does not work well with Win XP so that is my dilema. Thanks for your time!
