Windows Setup does not prompt for installation folder.


Earlier versions of Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows 95, and Microsoft Windows 98 prompt you for an installation folder. Windows 2000 is installed in the Winnt folder if it does not already exist. If it already exists, Winnt.001 is used as the installation folder.

You can specify a Windows 2000 installation folder only if you run Winnt32.exe and perform a clean installation, or if you perform an unattended installation.
