Im sorry to say , but you cant do a full/fresh install with the upgrade CD

you need an Operating system on the machine to "Upgrade"

actually you can do a clean install with the upgrade package as long as you have the cd to a prior version of windows. When you go to do the upgrade, xp asks you which partition you want to do it on, lets you format it and then asks you to insert the cd from a previous version of windows to make sure that you are eligible for the upgrade

Ditto on this.

Arthur, all your going to get out of buying the full version is about -$100.

As long as you have your CD from your previous OS, you should be fine.

When your doing clean install from upgrade CD
it asks for your ME or 98 cd to verify you have that OS

I wonder if he went down and spent the extra $100.

Hope he read the posts before he cut out. Bummer if he didn't.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
