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 command.com from the win-xp cdrom to my c: drive or am i talking rubbish.
many thanks

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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
