    You can't downgrade without formatting. You might be able to install 2000 as a second OS if you've got an extra partition on your drive or if your current partition is formatting with FAT32 or an older version of NTFS.

    you can avoid reformatting by creating a new partition with a program such as Partition Magic, which is what i use.

    so i formated, it said my hd was damaged or corrupt, but it isn't. i tried doing it with the FAT system, what is the NTFS system and should i do that instead, there is a prize for who ever helps me through this.
