hi, i will try and put this as i have been told, one laptop with win2000, how do you reformat it so that winxp can be put in... he has said that the boot order has been changed to CD, but it just jumps past it and carries on loading the OS which is in there now.

thanks

you "should" just be able to click Instal from the options on disc when it loads.

hi, he says that apart from the winxp disk he has win98 disk and it wants that in first, so on his other laptop he had to put win98 in first then XP over the top..thanks

?? im not an expert but when you insert the XP disc it should ask you if you want to install xp, dont know why it would want the win 98 disc. especialy if it has win2000 installed

also you dont need to change the boot order, put it back to HDD as 1st boot, start up comp then insert winXP disc and you should see the options screen
