Default Problems Changing OS to Win 2k Pro

sponsored links

 
Hi

I am currently using Win 2k Server but want to install Win 2k Pro

I went into Dos and formatted my main HD with Server on, and then tried to install off the Pro which i have done beofre when installing other Windows version....for some reason it does not like the backup of 2k Pro so i had to reinstall Server and install Pro from inside Windows

When i started teh setup it wouldn't upgrade - so did a clean installation - but would only install it on my 2nd HD, and created a dual boot

I thought that if i formatted my 1st HD with Server on, it woudl just boot from my 2nd HD with Pro on automatically - however my pc wouldn't boot at all and said it couldn't find some thing....cant remember what it was but it was 5 letter displayed in Dos beginning with an N (if that helps....lol)

Anyway i had to start again and just put Server on so i could use my pc till i work out how to use Pro

Anyone knows how i can remove teh dual boot thing and make it boot from Pro, with i guess is teh secondaryt OS as Server is installed first (as i can only seem to installed Pro from inside Windows, not from Dos)

Thanks
