I received a new laptop with Windows XP pre-installed, but I need to run Windows 2000. Is there an easy way to migrate?
You can't migrate in that direction. I'd format the hard disk and reinstall Windows 2000 from scratch.

Windows XP end of life and Windows 7 / Windows 8 migration
More than 12 years after its release, Windows XP is at the end of its life, at least in terms of support.

Also, most older computers just don’t have the guts, hardware-wise, to run the newer Microsoft systems.

To the rescue: Our guide to XP end of life and Windows 7 / Windows 8 migration.
