Hi,

I tried to install 2003 server on a machine with windows 2000
professional, it has one HD with 4 partitions.  Since, I am not plan
to keep the windows 2000 professional, so I formatted the 1st
partition to install 2003 server, I did not touch partition 2 to 4.

During installation process, I got cannot copy ntldr message.  Thru
disk utilily program (DOS version), I found out the partiotion table
label the original C drive that I wiped to "D:" and 2nd partition to
"C:", could this be the reason why that the setup program could not
copy ntldr?
Please advise.

Thanks,
Willy Jair
