    I created a 2nd primary partition to install it on. I currently have Windows Server 2003 installed, but I would like to install Windows 2000. When I put the Windows 2000 CD in, it says I can't install it because it is older than Windows 2003.

    How do I install this older version?

    Hi, vernonreeve

    Welcome to Wilders and Acronis Forums.

    That seem looks like you are trying to Install from within Wondows.

    You need to boot from the 2KCD to install. If is is not a Bootable [upgrade version] you will need to make some bootable floppys, which you can do from the 2kCD.

    Take Care,
