Chapter 1.  Installing and Booting Windows 2000

Chapter 1. Installing and Booting Windows 2000

Windows NT offered a relatively easy installation process, and Windows 2000 makes that process even easier. In most cases you can simply pop in the CD and start Setup, and Windows 2000 installs successfully with very little input from you.

In some situations, however, you might run across problems with installation. For example, Setup could have problems locating the hard disk for installation if you have a host adapter not supported directly by Windows 2000. In RAID installations you might need to specify SCSI device IDs manually rather than letting the RAID hardware assign them for you. And a handful of other potential problems can prevent Setup from finding the installation hard drive. This chapter addresses those situations with relatively painless solutions.
