    When i installed Windows XP i was unsure about its features so i installed another operating system on to my computer. I need to know how to set the default Operating System so that Windows ME does not load up when i want Windows XP. can you please help me?

    If you have done it correct - you should have a boot menu at start up. Just select XP

    Insert your Windows XP installation CD and do a Repair Installation. Next time, install ME first, then XP.

    Also note that you may have to manually edit your boot script to get into WinME.
