... only if you have both the 2000 and the XP inventories in the database.
Though chances are that - if they kept the hostnames - they would have been deleted as duplicates ... I'm not sure that there's a "install-date" in the OS.
But what there IS, is (assuming you used LANDesk to re-image the devices) the image-name and imaging date (I think) ... which I can't double check since I've not OSD'ed any devices in my lab for a while ...
... is that what you're talking about?

It has been a long time since I upgrade a 2K box to XP but if I remember correctly the working directory for those machines is still c:\winnt instead of c:\windows. If that is the case you could create a query based off that.
That information is stored under Computer>OS>NT Info>System Root
You would also want to include the OS name so that you are getting only XP machines with that system root and not Windows Servers or other 2k boxes.
Quick query would be something like:
OS name contains XP
AND NT Info system root = c:\winnt
Then set your column views to reflect those 2 fields.
I do not have a machine in that state to test this theory on but it should work.
That's exectly what I needed. Thank you.
Good trick. If you want to preplan a little and you want to cover multiple OSs, you could use Track Inventory Changes. This way you could track OS changes and SPs etc...
