Install Windows 2000 Server
There are three phases to the Windows 2000 Server installation: the text mode, the GUI or graphical mode, and the wizard-based installation mode. You must log on manually after the GUI-portion restart of Windows 2000 Server Setup.
To start the installation of Windows 2000 Server, start your computer from the SBS 2000 CD 1 and accept the Windows 2000 Server setup default settings.
If you cannot configure your hardware to start from CD, you must create setup boot disks. For additional information about how to create setup boot disks for Windows 2000, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
