Install Windows 2000 beside Vista

I have Windows 7, and Windows Vista on my Acer Aspire One. I have no cdrom for it. My goal is to install Windows 2000 onto a new partition. I cant install Windows 2000 from USB without deleting all other partitions (Unless there is a method I havnt seen)

Would it be possible to install MS-DOS, or Windows 95 onto this partition and copy the installation for Windows 2000 onto the hard drive, then install it from there? Can someone help me with this?

Other suggestions are welcomed.

Hello ieatlotz, you're making me hungry :smile:

You can use Windows 7's disk management to make room for 2k, than just install it and repair the boot either using W7 dvd or EasyBCD. If you grab the latest version of [thread=642]EasyBCD 2.0 beta[/thread] you shouldn't have any issues setting up the dual-boot.
