Windows 2000 Advanced Server Won't Work RIght On Dell Dimension 3000 2154
Listen. I know you think I'm a jerk, but I'm not. I volunteer here every day and have done so for many years. I help as much as I can. The level of support a person gets and how it is given depends almost 100% on one thing.
Come in here with a chip on your shoulder and you'll get a lot of grief, particularly if you do something like admit you're going to put an illegal copy on a machine (whether you want to admit it or not).
Windows 2000 Advanced Server Won't Work RIght On Dell Dimension 3000 2155
Dell reps kept lying to me, telling me it was possible to run Win2kas, I do have a business to run, after 21 days I couldn't simply return it anymore and because windows xp...
We're not Dell. You can rant all you want, but it won't help and it just gets old. You know darn well what you're trying to do is COMPLETELY unsupported by Dell. The machine isn't certified as a server or sold with a server OS and is a bottom of the barrel, very limited machine. If you don't know that, then you don't have any business trying to install a server OS, but I suspect you do know that.
I also suspect you've been backed into a corner, likely by a decision made by someone else and that frustration came out to us. It sure did to (and at) me.
Sounds like you've found a solution, and that's great. Feel free to come back for help any time and if you come in nice, I promise, we're nice back.
