Chapter 2: Installing and Configuring Microsoft Windows 2000 Server

About This Chapter

This chapter prepares you for running a Windows 2000 Server installation. It outlines the type of information you should gather to prepare for your installation and describes the steps you should take before you begin. The chapter then takes you through the phases of a normal installation and continues with a discussion of upgrading to Windows 2000 Server. The chapter finishes with a lesson on troubleshooting the Windows 2000 Server installation.

Before You Begin

To complete the lessons in this chapter, you must have

  • A computer that meets the minimum hardware requirements as outlined in "About This Book."
  • A copy of the Windows 2000 Server installation CD-ROM.

Lesson 1: Preparing to Install Windows 2000 Server

Before you can begin to install Windows 2000 Server, you must prepare for the installation by gathering information and making decisions about how you want to install the software. This lesson gives you the foundation you need to install Windows 2000 Server. It describes the tasks that you should complete before moving on to the installation.

After this lesson, you will be able to
  • Prepare to install Windows 2000 Server by completing preinstallation tasks such as identifying hardware requirements and gathering the necessary installation information
Estimated lesson time: 90 minutes

Preparing for Installation

During installation, the Windows 2000 Setup program asks you to provide information about how to install and configure Windows 2000. You should gather all the necessary information. Good preparation helps you avoid problems during and after the installation.

Before you begin the Windows 2000 installation process, review the list of tasks outlined in the table below. Each task is discussed in greater detail in the sections that follow. Initially, you should complete only the first two tasks in this table-verifying that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements and checking hardware compatibility. The remaining tasks are completed during the actual installation of Windows 2000 Server, which you will perform in the exercises later in this chapter. This table is meant only to prepare you for the installation so that you can install Windows 2000 Server without any unnecessary delays...

    I LIKE IT!

    I have used this text and lab manual for two semesters. The Instructor's CD has Power Point presentations, test bank, and best of all... detailed instructions on how to set up and perform the hands-on labs. I use removable hard drives in my lab, and the students really learn quickly by doing. I just hope a ALS text comes out soon for 2003 Server! Build on this one, but use the same template, Microsoft. That is an order.
