Windows XP to Windows 2000

By Surgeon ·
I Have compaq presario which came with windows xp pre-installed. I would like to find out whether theres any way of downgrading it to windows 2000. without affecting the data in the machine and if possible the settings too. Could the file transfer wizard in xp help me do this?

I'll just relate my experience.
I bought my Compaq recently too and I got Win XP home .
I bought Windows 2000 Pro Separately.

I formatted the user partition, by way of the Windows 2000 installation on my Compaq. Then I installed Windows2000 on NTFS. Remember save any files you want first!! Use the floppy disk.

Yes, I AM saying to save of all your files separately. Label them 'Transfer' floppies if you like.

Good Luck.
