I am using windows XP - I am installing Windows Server because it is required
for other software My PC seems to meet the hardware requirements- I have
created a new partition....but I keep getting this message when I try to
install Windows Server 2003

'This version of windows cannot be installed on this machine'

My PC is not part of a network is this the problem?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Mike;
You can not upgrade Windows XP to Windows Server 2003.
You will need to perform a Clean Installation either on the same partition
losing all data or on another partition.
You should ask further questions in the server newsgroups:

You have to boot from the CD. Open your BIOS and set
the CD Drive as the first bootable device.

Thanks for you response

Further information

I am on a PC with WindowsXP on the c drive
I am trying to install it on a partition
The software is the trial version downladed from the MS site i.e. not on a cd
