The win2000 repair setup started giving me names of files that were not in the same condition as when Win2000 was first installed and asked if they should be repaired. I want to install Win2K Professional on a Pentium III system with 256MB of RAM that is running Windows NT 4.0 so that I can use Microsoft IIS 5.0. Could I somehow convert the FAT to NTFS 4, and/ or replace its ntfs.sys with one from SP5 or 6?

I'm sort of bent on fixing that drive, tired of flipping jumpers, tired of registry problems and unable to run certain apps on the usual shifted partitions. I said 'yes to all' and the problem was history. The main problem is that Win98 setup won't run from Win2K. Results 1 to 10 of 10 Thread: Windows 98 triple boot?

For example, if you want to use Microsoft Word on the same computer under both Windows 98 and Windows XP, you must start Windows 98 and install Microsoft Word. So I need to recreate the partitions?

However, Windows NT 4.0 requires Service Pack 4 to be able to read and write files on a volume formatted with the version of NTFS used in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. •Do not install Windows XP Because your old system now has a new look: Most likely you'll be quite surprised to find a handful of new files in your Windows 9x/Me root directory! However, the Windows XP OS often uses the older folder name of "C:\WINDOWS," so the last part of its ARC might be "\WINDOWS" instead.

This configuration will work only if the root partition is FAT16 or FAT32 and the partition on which you install Win98 is also FAT16 or FAT32.
