I have a computer which was running Win 2000. However the installation had become corrupt. I decided to install Win 2000 over it again. However this Windows 2000 installation gets stuck in the middle and will not proceed. I have tried to reintall Win 2000 a dozen times, but it simply is not working. The installation is getting stuck in the middle.
Now I am thinking of installing Win XP over the Win 2000 installation. However the problem is that there is data on the hardisk. I want to know if this data will be lost if I install Win XP over the Win 2000 installation. Will the Desktop of the My Document folders be completely over written and everything will be lost or will XP simply ignore them and leave them intact?
Thanks in advance
