Post 3+ Months Ago

I currently have 2 operating systems on my hard drive.
XP a few weeks ago just wouldn't boot at all, not even in safe mode.
So I tried to install me, and it installed fine, works ok (well sorta), but now I have xp and me both installed.

I tried to uninstall xp through dos (info from microsoft site) but it seems there are some missing files.

Is there a way to uninstall ME, and then reinstall XP. I would like to get it working again to copy some files that aren't available to me in ME.

After I copy some files from XP, I plan to format C and install XP from scratch.

If I can't reinstall XP, I am ready to format C and start over again.

Any information would be helpful.

Thanks......

there isnt a way that i know of to UNINSTALL a windows xp installation, unless it was upgraded from another OS such as ME. but efectively removing the windows (xp) directory will remove most of what XP uses to function and operate.. youy could also boot from the windows XP cd and chose the option to repair an existing installation of windows, that way youll save all your settings etc...
