PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Currently WinME
Problem Application Name & Version: n/a
Problem Hardware Make & Model: n/a
Error Messages: n/a



Here's my problem.  I have a copy of Windows 2000, but it's in iso format.  I've never even HEARD of iso format, let alone know how to use it.  What I want to do is format my harddrive to get rid of Windows ME (spit, spit) and clean install Windows 2000, but I'm afraid to format until I'm sure I know what I'm doing with this iso file.  I looked in a few different places online, but they either didn't apply to me, or just didn't make sense.  Any help would be VERY appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi,

An ISO file is a cdr image file. You need to use a cdrom burning software like Roxio Easy-Cd Creator or Nero to create the cd from this ISO image. Of course, you also need a cdr drive.

Ok...I've burned the iso onto a CD, and ran the makeboot program to make some boot disks...correct me if I'm wrong, but it should be now safe to format my drive, and reboot the computer with boot disk#1 in and it will run Win2k setup, right?

Hi,

If your system supports bootable cds (set in BIOS), then you don't even need the boot disks. But if not, at this point you have all you need to install Win2k if the burn went well.
