    [HIDE]I'll go for options C and D for this question.

    In reality I would always do a nice clean fresh install and blow Windows 95 into oblivion.[/HIDE]

    Just a little "tip" for those who have yet to take a Comptia exam- when they say "choose all that apply" it usually but not always means there are more than one correct answer. If you choose 2 and there are 3 then it is wrong :(

    I've still got my A+ L-Plates strapped on but I would hazard a guess at A and D being right.

    Excuse: I haven't read that far in the book yet! :noob

    A, C, D. are the correct answers. :)

    To upgrade a system to Windows 2000 from a previous operating system using a CD-ROM installation, you can (1) boot the system to the existing operating system and then insert the Windows 2000 Professional distribution CD in the CD-ROM drive and click Install Windows; (2) start Setup through the Run command (in Windows 9x and NT 4.0, click Start and select the Run option; in Windows 3.x and NT 3.51, click File and then select the Run option). At the prompt, enter the location of the Windows 2000 start file (Winnt.exe or Winnt32.exe) on the distribution CD (such as d:\i386\Winnt32.exe). In the case of Windows 3.x, you should use the Winnt.exe option.

    no, it won't. You have to navigate to the directory first. Always read and understand the question before answering. Comptia are the masters of making you answer before doing so!

    Okay, they have been a few comments expressing niggling doubt about the validity of Boyce's answers.

    So, I have done a bit of revision and tested the theory out with a real Windows 2000 CD.

    I can report that Boyce is bang on correct.

    Answer A states...

    This is true. If you shell out to the command prompt, enter D: (or the drive letter of your CD ROM) and type setup, it will bring up the installation window, and you can then click on the button *Install Windows 2000*.

    Zimbo asked...

    The answer is yes! here is a link to prove it...

    How to upgrade from Windows 95 or 98

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers Boyce 8)
