  1. Hey guys i am back again. I recently installed XP Pro on a dell latitude c600, but unfortunately it is not working so well. It is buggy and freezes a lot. So i was thinking of just downgrading to win2k, do you think that this o.s. might be better suited for this system.

    oh by the way my specs for this system are:

    pentium 3
    497mhz
    256mb ram
    20 gb hdd /checked good

    Ok so when i tried to install win2k I keep getting no bootable device error with 2 beeps. Yes i changed the boot sequence in the bios. and i put the hdd in another pc after i got the error. the hdd is good. Any tips and ideas are always greatly appreciated:blackeye::confused:
