i have just purchased win xp prof. my oem at the moment is win me, which i installed over win 98. unfortuneately i did not opt to install the uninstall me option. my question is if i now install xp over the other 2 (98 + me) am i just using loads of space. or should i reformat and start again. (that will be a pain cos of all my files and programs. my system came with a format to new disc (98) should i use this and then install xp. best option please. cheers, you clever people.
that would mean that i will need all driver infor. can i not use the restore to factory condition which was win 98 and then install xp. or how about reinstalling me with the uninstall option! then uninstalling me. then installing xp. i'm so worried i will not remember to back something up
The clean install is always going to be the best long term option.As above,make sure you collect in advance any XP drivers you might need for modem,printer,etc and also ensure you've a copy of the MS Blaster patch and your Firewall program which you should install BEFORE connecting to the internet once XP is installed.
