How to install Windows 2000 on Dell Optiplex 755

Recommended Posts

Important Note: This how-to article is made for the Dell Optiplex 755 and may not work on 745/760.


What you'll need:

  • Windows 2000 disc (Service Pack 4 with all updates recommended)
  • Dell Optiplex 755 (duh)
  • Drivers (will be provided as attachment)
  • USB Flash Drive (At least 1gb)

Got it? Let's begin!

  1. Go to the BIOS and make sure the SATA Operation is set to IDE.
  2. Boot into the Windows 2000 disc then normally install it.
  3. Make sure you downloaded the drivers attached to the attachment then put it on a USB Flash Drive.
  4. Plug in the USB Flash Drive into the computer then run each file.
  5. Hopefully now, everything should work as normal and you've did it!

Some additional steps...

  1. If you need wifi on Windows 2000, download it here then install it
  2. Install the wifi card driver using Windows XP Drivers.
