Transferring driver info from a dual booted XP/2000

  1. Ok, I have a computer (dell optiplex) that now has 2000 and XP installed. The problem is that on the XP version no information about programs, drivers etc. has transferred over to the new XP install. That includes ethernet drivers for internet access.

    Is there a quick and easy way to fix this?

    Yep, I had the same problem, when made a dual boot system I had to reinstall all programs and drivers again. :(

    Or do a search for driver collector/backup programs which will search the system copy all drivers it finds and creat a backup file that you can then transfer to the other drive.

    patio. :cool:
