    I have finished upgrading my Exchange 2k to 2003 on my
    Win 2k server machine. The Exchange 2003 seems to be
    working fine. Now I'm attempting to upgrade the Windows
    2000 server to 2003. When I run the setup.exe on the cd
    and choose Installation Type "upgrade", a message comes
    up saying "Before setup continues, please restart your
    computer". I restarted it and tried again but the same
    message comes up. What should I do? I'm using the
    administrator account throughout the process.

    I think you are supposed to start the installation as a boot disc.

    I tried that. But at some point it says "You chose to
    install Windows on a partition that contains another
    OS ... Installing Multiple OS's is not recommended ..." .
    I don't think it's allowing me to upgrade Windows that
    way. Any other ideas?
