From MCSE: Windows 2000 Professional Study Guide, Second Edition

Chapter 3: Upgrading to Windows 2000 Professional

Before you attempt to upgrade Windows 2000 Professional, you need to understand the difference between an upgrade and a clean installation. If your previous operating system can be upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional and you want to retain your system settings, then you choose to perform an upgrade. If your operating system does not support a Windows 2000 upgrade or if you want to start from scratch, then you choose to perform a clean installation. Client upgrade paths and requirements are used to determine if your operating system can be upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional. In order to upgrade, you must be running Windows 9x or Windows NT 3.51 or 4, and your hardware must meet the minimum requirements. This chapter covers the requirements for upgrading to Windows 2000 Professional.

You also should consider possible upgrade problems or known issues. This is especially important if you are upgrading from Windows 9x, because the upgrading process is not as smooth as it is when you are starting from a Windows NT system. An example of an upgrade issue is lack of support in Windows 2000 for applications or utilities that use virtual device drivers. You'll find a discussion of these issues in this chapter.

There are several tasks you should perform to prepare your computer before you start the upgrade process. This chapter provides an upgrade checklist to help you plan your upgrade strategy. The checklist includes items such as deleting any unnecessary files or applications and taking an inventory of your computer's configuration.

Finally, after you've made your preparations, you are ready for the big moment. Here, you will learn about all of the steps involved in the Windows 2000 upgrade process.

Upgrade packs are used to make any changes to your Windows 9x or Windows NT applications that are required to make the application work properly in Windows 2000. The final section of this chapter describes how to apply upgrade packs.


Note
The upgrade processes for Windows 2000 Professional and Server are extremely similar. The major differences involve the client upgrade paths and hardware requirements.

Deciding Whether to Upgrade

An upgrade allows you to preserve existing settings. A clean install places Windows 2000 in a new folder. After a fresh install, you need to reinstall all of your applications and reset your preferences.

You should perform an upgrade if the following conditions are true:

  • You are running Windows 9x or Windows NT Workstation 3.51 or 4.
  • You want to keep your existing applications and preferences.
  • You want to preserve any local users and groups you've created under Windows NT.
  • You want to upgrade your current operating system with the Windows 2000 operating system.
You should perform a clean install if any of the following conditions are true:
  • There is no operating system currently installed.
  • You have an operating system installed that does not support an upgrade to Windows 2000 (such as DOS or Windows 3.x).
  • You want to start from scratch, without keeping any existing preferences.
  • You want to be able to dual-boot between Windows 2000 and your previous operating system.
Performing a clean install and dual-booting are covered in detail in Chapter 1, "Getting Started with Windows 2000 Professional."

Preparing to Upgrade to Windows 2000 Professional

Like any other major change to your computer, upgrading to Windows 2000 Professional requires some preparatory steps.

Microsoft Exam Objective

Upgrade from a previous version of Windows to Windows 2000 Professional.
  • Apply update packs to installed software applications.
  • Prepare a computer to meet upgrade requirements.
Getting ready to upgrade to Windows 2000 Professional involves the following steps:
  • Make sure that your system meets the operating system and hardware requirements.
  • Consider upgrade issues, particularly if you're upgrading from Windows 95 or 98.
  • Use an upgrade checklist to plan for the upgrade.
These preparations are discussed in detail in the following sections.

Client Upgrade Paths and Requirements
