I recently aquired a ibm 300gl. it has pentium 3 733 mhz. the problem is i can't get win2000 installed. the 4 windows 2000 boot discs will not work because it I have the win2000 cd that has pro/server/adv server on it. After you get past the formatting part it says something about cant find sp3. The computer has no option to boot from the CD so thats outnof the question. I need a boot disk that will give me acess to my cd drive so i can type out the dir to i386 and run winnt.exe. the only disk i have found that gave me acess to my cd was a maxtor maxblast floppy where i would tell it to run from cd and not insert the cd. the problem was it said the win2000 installer said it couldnt find a hard drive with 217 megs free. So, dose anyone knowA: how to get this thing to boot directly from cdB: a boot floppy that will give me acess to my cd drive so i can run winnt.exe?
Bootdisks in all flavours with CD Rom drivers. From DOS to XP.
AFAIK, 3-in-1 Windows discs are pirated copies, and questions about it are thus not allowed on our forums!
If this Windows 2000 copy isn't illegal, please PM me (or any other mod/admin) so we can open it up again... kay?
