winxp bootup



i had win me installed which had a major problem.
i had to uninstall the folder in dos mode via a boot up disk, i then installed win xp with no problem except a get the message of which operating system to install ,win-me or win-xp.
would this just involve copying the file from the win-xp cdrom to my c: drive or am i talking rubbish.
many thanks



you didnt format ur hd. go back and format, and do a clean install
of xp,it still has buggy me files on it.;)

It COULD work properly, but deleting Windows ME like that manually is like uninstalling a program by deleting its folder. NEVER DO THIS THAT WAY! Like the guy said, reformat is the only way. Make sure you have a bootable floppy, and do this.

However, if you're stubborn and don't want to do this, do that:

in DOS, type the following:

attrib -r -s -h boot.ini [enter]
edit boot.ini [enter]

if you're just a little smart, you should see that this is what you see in the bootup menu (the last lines).

Look at the line that says "Windows Millennium" or something like that, probably the last one. Just delete it., then save the file.

Then type this in DOS before you restart:

attrib +r +s +h boot.ini [enter]

Then reboot =P

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
