    If you want to start clean. (format) Try this>

    Bootup with the '98 boot floopy, no cd rom support. Format from there. Boot again with the floppy, this time with cd rom support. Insert the ME cd when ready & type D:\cd win9x (enter). (CD Rom)
    D:\win9x setup (enter) Away it goes. You will be asked at some point for the full version of '98.

    As long as you have the full version of 98 it won't be a problem. :)

    Moved to other operating systems. Because WinME is an OS that I consider an OTHER operating system :D

    An upgrade is the same as a full version you just have to at some point put in a cd of another os you have to verify that u are upgrading.


    PS, has to be a full version cd not an upgrade :(
