System transfer for Windows 2000 Pro

By pcict ·
In Windows 98SE, we can use the sys.com to do a system command transfer, can we do the same way for Windows 2000 Pro? What is the command and steps then?
Please advise.
TQ

no you cannot.
this is because NT/W2K/XP is a "true" operating system, not superstructure over MSDOS.

what you can do however is to create bootable emergency repair disk or CD and Techrepublic recently published a good article about that.

You cannot create a w2k boot disk, you can only create w2k setup or ERD disks.

I find this to be one of the best sources of various boot disk images on the net - http://www.bootdisk.com/

If you upgraded from 98, here's a tech note on how to create the floppy - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;Q255292&

hi,
first what are you trying to accomplish? are you trying to copy existing files? or just transferring files over w2k? are you going to run dual os? or upgrading to w2k? maybe you should run us some more info on your task.
if you want dual os just install w2k. this also allows your to file share from both os. if you just want w2k, i would suggest to install w2k first and set your partition. then go back and delete 98se partition. this should surrender available capacity to w2k. also, you CAN creat a boot disk for w2k, just explore the software and look for startup folder, burn it or copy it to 4 formatted disk.

*besure to back up everything to avoid disasters.
*should be able to follow the instruction on the boot disk that you created if ever you need to repartition your drive.
hope this works if not disregard, good luck
