    Of course I had troubles with installing XP. M$ wouldn't make a OS that would install easy in one time ;).

    If your going from 98E to Pro you might just as well format your programs and do a clean install with XP Pro. With the upgrade it drags alot of unnessisary old _rap along that you'll never use again, unless you return to 98. Otherwise you can just clean up everything in 98 you don't use, defrag of course and proceed with the upgrade.

    P.S. Are you the Bman from Simviation.com? just curious...

    ram

    The many times i tried to install it, wouldnt install it would say that it couldnt copy files properly and after i would skip many files sometimes it would work and then sometimes i would get errors when in the acutal setup. It turned out to be one of my ram modules!

    PS: I found that out from this forum someone told me he had the same problem when installing win2k turns out the module isnt compatible with xp!:rolleyes:

    Man thats really odd. can you find out the module your missing. It should say when you get the error message which module is missing? Are you up to date on all your programs/upgrades at Windows Update..
