As long as you have the windows 2000 CD and your rig has a CD drive, you should be able to install it. You may need device drivers for your hardware. You could always use vmware player and create a windows 2000 VM on your current system instead.

Drop the disc in and find out, don`t see why you can`t.

Are you asking for instructions ?

Hum I thought maybe OP had some data on an old drive that was needed and needed a running system to retrieve it

If that is the case then what I said earlier still goes.

yes I am having a senior moment. I have "dropped the cd" in and it gives me: stop , you know BSOD. So, Iwas wondering if I can get windows 2000 at all, since it is giving me the stop error!!! I am not asking for instructions!

I don't have other pc's to try it on, I will try it on Virtualbox, but I am wondering should I set it to windows 7 and then install 200 on the windows 7 so that it is just like what I am doing?
