install Win2k over linspire4.5

By kmedd3 ·
new machine has linspire4.5, attempt to install win2k over. During boot, noticed error "IDE channel 1 80 pin conductor not installed. during setup, received error codes -i/o 3200- multiple times. Final result:win2k would not install. As new out of box machines (4) I assumed there would be proper cabling, tried to uninstall linspire4.5 and had some results.

The first error indicates that the IDE cable is 40 not 80 conductor cable. The 40 conductor cable will limit the HD data transfer rate to 33MB/sec.

Linspire does not support dual boot with Windows. However, if you want dual boot, either you install Windows first then Linspire or you have to reinstall Linspire after the Windows installation. They must be in separate partition or drive!

Refer to Can I to dual boot between Linspire and MS Windows? If so, how do I do it? How do I uninstall Linspire 4.5/5.0 and remove the Linspire 4.5/5.0 boot screen?
