My son has been running Windows ME but he has messed it up somehow so that everything he does he gets all sorts of error messages. files missing etc. He wants to take out ME and reinstall Windows 98 whats the best way of removing Win ME. I suggested using MSDOS but he gets error every time he tries. cheers
click here for a visual guide to installing Windows 98SE.
click here if you need to download a suitable floppy startup boot disk to install Windows.
Please note that you will need to have all the device drivers for the computer hardware - graphics card, sound card, modem, network card, even the motherboard may require specific drivers. If you don't have the installation disks for the hardware I suggest you wait until you have all of the drivers otherwise Windows will not run well at all which kind of defeats the whole point of a reinstallation.
If you can install software at all you could run a utility like Belarc Advisor click here which will output a report that you can print off. The report will be a pretty accurate list of the hardware the system is built from, and if you can identify your components like this you can source the individual drivers from the manufacturers websites.
