Thread: Windows Server 2003........please help

    Being from an ISO shouldn't make a different. As long as you burnt the CD as an image, and not extracted the files out manually and burnt them, then the CD should be bootable. In case you aren't sure what that means, you can turn your computer on and set it to load from the CD first, instead of the HDD. Then it will start the installation from there, instead of booting up your current OS first and trying to install from that.

    More to the point, why do you even want Windows 2003 Server? No offense, but it seems to me that you don't really know your way around PCs that well, and installing a server operating system is going to need a lot of work if you want to use it as a normal desktop operating system. So unless you've got specific need for a server operating system, then I don't see why you'd want to install it.

    I got it working, but now it says cannot put over windows xp, it says advance now, whats that mean? here is a screenshot!

    [EDIT] I cropped this attachment because it was gettin' far too BIG in size (consider those ppl on dialup) and why didn't ya just save it as a .jpg as that would not only give a better pic but also a smaller file size? :rolleyes2

    Enough with the huge screenshot. You haven't answered my question from before. You don't seem to have the knowledge to install a new operating system by reading though what is prompted, so if you're planning on installing a server based operating system, then it's more work still. Please, before you go on, can you explain why you are wanting to do this?

    we can help you with this, but you have to work with us. people have asked you questions and given advice but you continue like nothing was said. Getting help here is a 2 way street. If you want help, you at least have to pretend like you are listening.
    :)

    1. have you installed an OS before?

    2. why do you want to install a server OS?

    3. do no installed from windows, boot off the CD.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
