Compaq 1500 and windows2000

I have succesfully installed Windows2000 Pro on an old Prosignia server P83 mhz!, however my 1500 with twin P5-166 and 196mb ram will not. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This system has a 9gig drive 0-3 and 4 is a 4gig. A 12 speed scsi cdrom. Secondary scsi with 3 hds.
All compaq controllers and nic and a Sound Blaster.
I had Win98SE on it but would like to have 2000 so it will recognize both processors.

Hello Mark,
Please make sure that you update the System BIOS first. Are you planning on starting from Scratch or just doing the OS upgrade?? If you are starting from scratch then I would suggest you run system erase first and then go through the assisted method of installation with a Smart Start CD.

Bios up to date. A clean harddrive. The system has 196mb ram but after boot shows 16mb. I know I have changed that before, but have forgotten to! I now beleive this could be the problem. Thank you for any help.
