C. Boot the new computer using Windows 2000 Rescue disk. Choose Install option when prompted to the network drive.

D.Use Windows 2000 Boot disks to format the hard drive. Use boot disks to install Windows 2000 Server OS over the network.

Correct Answer: B


There are three ways to install Windows 2000 Server operating system:
1. From CD ROM drive: If your computer has a supported CDROM drive (list on HCL), you can start the installation directly from the CDROM drive. If your computer doesn't support booting from the CDROM drive directly, you can use Boot Disks to start the installation process.
2. Using Winnt.exe: This option is useful if you are having an unsupported CDROM drive. Also, if you want to install Windows 2000 OS over the network, use Winnt.exe. Prior to running Winnt.exe, you need to boot to MSDOS or Win95/98 DOS. Also, if you are installing over the network, ensure that you are connected to the network drive by installing network drivers.
3. By using Win32.exe: This option is used to upgrade existing installation of WIn95/98/NT Work Station/NT Server. Win32.exe is also used when installing to a different folder for dual boot.
