Not enough space to upgade NT to 2003

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by Admin Istrator, Jul 21, 2004.

  1. My WINNT directory is 1.1 GB and 2003 says it needs about 1.2GB to install.
    With NT limiting the boot partition to 2GB, how do you get by this. Is my
    WINNT dir just gummed up with crap?

  2. Hello,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    To expand the partition on the Windows NT computer which you will install
    Windows 2003, please refer to the suggestion from the following article.

    HOW TO: Expand the Boot Partition During a Windows Server 2003 Upgrade
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=325857

    You can also refer to the Windows Server 2003 deployment document on
    Windows Server 2003 installation CD:

    \SUPPORT\TOOLS\Deploy.cab. In this file, you will find the CHM files
    talking about this option and some other documents regarding unattended
    installation.

    Please fully back up the Windows NT server before upgrade in order to avoid
    any unexpected data loss.

    Have a nice day!
