I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an older computer with a 40 GB hard drive. I would like to set it up so that I could play around with both of these OS's. I already have XP pro installed. What would it take to get both of these on separate partitions?? I dont mind re-installing XP pro if it means getting them both on there.
I need to learn active directory(any good tutorials??) for a job. As well as setting up a print server, FTP, and all that JAZZ.

Encouraged by my familys lack of knowledge and ability to really mess with things on my other PC I started to think about my options are as far as limiting person(s) in my house to only doing certain things on my computer -- which made me think about Servers ability to do this type of thing much easier. I started thinking that I do need to learn more about using Windows Server so for these two reasons I am going to dual boot Windows 2K with Windows 2003 Server.



Surely I won't have any problem playing games on the LAN with 2003 Server, but does anyone know of any problems that I might encounter? This is the main reason I am keeping Windows 2K installed for the moment, just so I can test out Windows 2003 Server and see if I am going to have any issues with gaming. If not I will be removing Win2K and running 2003 Server only.
 

A:Dual booting Windows 2K and 2003 .NET Server

The only problem you may encounter is that its wise to install later operating systems (like 2003 server) AFTER YOU HAVE INSTALLED Windows 2000 Server. The boot technology is usually upgraded between these kinds of things, to the extent that the 2000 bootloader will not handle 2003, etc, or NT4 will not handle 2000, etc. So remember that.

Also, DON'T EVEN DREAM about installing both of these operating systems to the same partition.

Beyond that... I guess all should be fine. Oh, but you did mention games....

Server Operating Systems are generally not optimised for games. If you want to play games, etc better to have some kind of dual boot system with XP, and so forth.

Because of my interest in operating systems, but also in the interests of compatibilty with games, I currently have many operating systems installed. Here is a list|:-

Windows 98
Windows XP
Windows 2000 Advanced Server with Oracle, Exchange, etc.
Windows 2003 server
Red Hat linux 9 with Ximian Gnome 2
Slackware 9.0


And I could add more. If you want some advise on how to create something like this, and make it all work, I will be only too pleased to tell you.

Its nice to have a HDDs dedicated for operating systems and HDDs dedicated for data in these cases, because if you want to make these kinds of complex operating system configs you have to be doing a lot of partitioning, formatting, etc.

Currently we are on an NT network with a few 2000 servers tossed in. Today I learned that the plan is to migrate everything to Linux. Lets assume that this only applies to the servers and that the users will still operate with 98/nt/2000/xp. What are your thoughts on this?

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

What would your concerns be if this was done on your network? What problems have you encountered if you'd tried this? Or what successes? Know of any businesses that have done this successfully?

I have a client who has an existing Server 2000 domain. He is running two Windows 2000 servers in his domain. What he's looking to do is to replace the master domain controller,(the server which was first brought up and hence contains the master copy of the domain database).

I believe that since this is going to be a completely new server and running Server 2003 standard edtiion I believe, that I'll need to first take everyone out of the domain, demote the second domain controller to a stand-alone and then demote the master domain controller which effectively dissolves the domain. Then after bringing the brand new server up, recreate the domain and then the secondary domain controller and join everyone back into domain (new SID but same domain name).

Does this sound correct-could anyone confirm whether this is correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?

Greetings

Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

A:Solved: Difference b/w Windows Server 2003 and Small Business Server 2003

Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server has the following restrictions:
- Only one computer in a domain can be running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server must be the root of the Active Directory® forest.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server cannot trust any other domains.
- A Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server domain cannot have any child domains.
- Each additional server must have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 client access license (CAL). You can use CALs for each user or for each device.
The standard edition of Windows Small Business Server 2003 includes Windows Server 2003 technologies, including fax service, firewall service, and remote-access service. Additionally, it includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, enhanced tools for server monitoring and administration, and an out-of-the-box solution for internal Web sites. The standard edition is ideal for customers who do not require the higher-level functionality included in the premium edition

The premium edition includes everything in the standard edition, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, and Microsoft FrontPage® 2003. The premium edition is ideal for small businesses with more demanding IT needs, such as data-intensive line-of-business applications, or advanced firewall and Web-caching capabilities

The standard edition has most of the stuffs inside.

Hi Rajesh,

If the CD-Rom won't work at all, then
you can still boot if you've made
the 4 disk "boot up" set.

You may have to do that from another
2000 Adv. Server machine. Once you've
created the boot disks, then you can
choose repair as the options come up.
It will ask for your CD, which should
work at that time.

Hello...

With this new dual boot, I plan on using two separate drives to ensure a problem free environment. I only ask as this is the place where actual responses are useful and helpful.

BTW, I managed to run the OS's in a VM so now is the time to migrate to the real deal.

Our setup is:

Server 1 is the main DC which runs DNS, DHCP, WINS with Active Directory installed.
on it.

Server 2 is the backup DC in case Server 1 goes down, it is our file and print server. It has Active Directory installed also, and runs DNS, has DHCP but DHCP is turned off at the moment unless Server 1 goes down.

The only 2 servers (Server 1 and Server 2) are the only servers that have Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, WINS on them, they also have the global catalog activated on them.

We are wondering if the problem could be that when server 1 starts up, its trying to find server 2 and is hanging for around 10 to 15 minutes until it times out. Is there a way to change the time so that Server 1 will stop searching for Server 2 after say 10 seconds?

Question to the collective genius of TSG.

I have had some intermittent problems with internet access from the Server and using Hamachi. I have (2) NIC cards in the server with (2) different subnets. Only (1) has a DNS server and can access the internet. The other connection is LAN/WAN only. Seems that, from the Server, internet traffic (DNS) is being sent to this 2nd connections.

(1) NIC 192.168.1.X
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.253
DNS is working HERE.

(2) NIC 10.10.1.X
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 10.10.1.253
NO available DNS here.

Can you all see if the following solution will work?

1st Step: From the Network Connections window, select Advanced. Go to the Advanced Settings option. Then confirm that the 192.168.1.210 network is the top or first on the network list.

2nd Step: Then from the 10.10.1.210 network, go to the TCP/IP properties, then select Advanced at the bottom.

On the DNS tab, at the bottom of the page, Uncheck Register this connection’s addresses in DNS.

3rd step (may not be necessary):

From the General Tab, When using the Following IP address, take out the Default Gateway, 10.10.1.253.
I'm not sure about the third step. I will be implementing this tomorrow so any advice would be appreciated!!!

Yes, the os's are on seperate Hard Drives. Is the problem with the switches?
I'm stumped on this one.

I am an IT student who is forced to use a VM to run Windows 7 Professional and Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. I currently own a Macbook Pro and am not able to afford another windows based pc for school. I was told by a teacher to Dual Boot both of these under the same partition. Ive tried to understand all of this and ask ?'s but I'm getting really lost. Can anyone easily explain this concept to me and maybe point me in the right direction.
Thanx So Much,

Blake G

INTRODUCTION (afterwards, the actual steps to perform will be listed for your reference, each in their own post reply, to avoid "clutter"):

Windows CAN be secured very well, but, you have to go thru some "GYRATIONS/EFFORT" to do it, but, it IS doable (but not to any 100% levels, because again - new holes/vulnerabilities appear in the OS & its libs + apps, but this gets you closer, if not as close as a body needs to be!).

THIS IS GEARED TO "stand-alone" systems online on the internet (However - it can be adapted for LAN/WAN office or home networked environs, BUT, pay attention to step #2's 'warnings' about pulling Client For Microsoft Networks, &/or File & printer sharing - most networks require/need this)

BACKGROUND & INFORMATION + TOOLS YOU CAN USE TO HELP YOU SECURE YOUR SYSTEM:

I have 2003 server on a dual nic PC.
there are 2 broadband connections coming into me.
nic 1 (on board broadcom adapter) has Virgin Media broadband coming in via a netgear gigabit wireless router (DSL).
nic 2 is a netgear GA311 REV A1 pci card connected to a bt hub.

dns is running on both routers.

I want my work pc's (home office) running on the virgin side of the network (which they are) and to see the server (which they can).

I want my family pc's to work on the BT side of the network (which they are) but I also want them to see the server.

The problem is, they cannot see the server even though it is connected by the second nic to this network.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
 

A:dual nic 2003 server network config issue

I need more information. What are your private addresses on both sides? Particularly the BT and Virgin Media side. I assume BT means British Telecom.

hi,

i hav a sytem with vista pre installed on it. I wanted to install sever 2003 on the same hard drive but another partition. i created the partition but once i finished the installation, system cannot locate vista any more. i know that vista got a different boot manger which causes the problem. But is there any way i could get around so that i can have server 2003 and vista on dual boot mode?

thanks in advance,

newbee

you could use a os selctor like acronis os selector or Use the BCDEdit (Vista/Longhorn) utility or check out www.pro-networks.org

Hello,everyone.I have a doubt:There's a single hard drive in my laptop,and it contains two partitions(besides the 100 MB "system reserved" partition).The "C:" drive contains the OS and boot files.The "D:" partition holds personal data and backup files.Both are primary.I would like to set my laptop to dual boot mode,with Windows Server 2008 R2 as the new bootable OS.I would achieve this by shrinking the "D:" partition,creating a new one(e.g."E:")with the unallocated space,and installing the new OS into the new partition.Nevertheless,I fear that installing a new OS will overwrite/modify the current MBR,leaving me with only the Server 2008 R2 boot entry.
So,will Server 2008 R2 really mess with MBR or boot entries on the HD,or will the boot manager still report two boot entries?

P.S.:I've tried creating a VHD drive,installing and booting Server 2008 R2 from there,however that can't be accomplished because my notebook Windows 7 edition is Home Basic x64,whereupon this feature isn't enabled.If I try to install the desired OS to the virtual disk,the setup disk manager GUI will report this error message:

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is a surfaced virtual disk.Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer?s hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk?s controller is enabled in the computer?s BIOS menu."

A:Dual booting Windows 7 Home Basic x64 and Server 2008 R2 without VHD

When you install a later Windows version its boot environment will replace that of the existing OS.
It very well possible to install Windows 2008 R2 to VHD.

The message you receive can be ignored as Windows 2008 R2 boot manager can boot VHD's.
Moreover a dual boot will be created automatically.
The new boot environment (files) will be placed in System Reserved (and replace/amend the existing).

If you prefer shrinking d: and installing R2 on the newly created space you will have a slightly better disk performance everything else is the same for VHD or native partition install.
