    Diskette boot for W2K CD Install

    Recently, I bought a new, larger HD for my desktop PC on which I want to install my Win2K system, and remove the old HD from the system entirely. Unfortunately, my BIOS setup does not allow a boot from CD, and I don't have any diskettes to begin the install process. However, I have seen other Knowledge Base articles make reference to such a diskette. How, and where might I get such diskettes, or download diskette images that I could create the diskettes from?

    Jim,
    Try this:
    To create a Windows 2000 Professional bootable diskette you will need four 1.44MB diskettes and the Windows 2000 Professional CD.

    Click Start / Run / browse to the CD-ROM drive.
    Open the "BOOTDISK" folder and double-click makeboot.exe and click ok to launch the program to create the diskette.
