Unknown. Bootleg copy. Tell me the difference, and why you'd pick 2k over xp? I want the least hassle in upgrade. I think I have to flash my bios for either. I know I do for XP. I have the disk for the flash already.

Well, if you are looking for easiest upgrade, i have not had any experience with 2k, but i do know that XP is easy as pie to install. (for example: my moms boyfriend was installing it and he fell asleep during the install, and it still worked even though the computer only had 64 MB of ram, and XP requires ethier 128 or 256(not sure))

btw, it was finished when he woke up

I just found my missing xp pro CD. Looks like that'* the way I'll go. I just don't relish the fact that I have to flash my bios. Weather is good right now, so no risk of power outages. I hope.

there are not much differences between xp home and pro just support for multi processors amd pro slows the total amount on speed that you can get on the net saves 20% of band width. I would recomend XP or 98se. You should not need to flash your bois for XP but I do not know what you are running

I've got 512meg of Ram, and my bios has to be upgraded. XP won't even load until I do. Wish me luck, I'm going in!
