Remove ME & Replace by 98SE

  earlval 21:02 26 Apr 2003

Help please.
I have two hard drives fitted to my system, no 1 a 10gig partitioned into two, registered as C Drive & E Drive.
A 40 gig drive partitioned into two and registered as D drive & F drive.
Being a licenced Radio ham I wish to use some AR Programmes which DO NOT WORK with ME (This is accepted by many & the Programme producers).
I wish to remove ME and go back to 98SE. Is it feasable to simply format drive C and not touch the others and then re-install 98SE or will I have to format all drives / hard disks.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am reluctant to get rid of all my programmes and data and then having to start all over again re-installing everything.
Help please

Yes it is feasible to format just your 'C' drive and then install 98. The other partitions should be OK.

You'll still have to reinstall all your programs though, earlval, but your data will be okay.

It will be easy with Partition Magic. But you could try with a start disc from click here top one on the list. to format start with disc then type FORMAT C: press enter

Many many thanks for the info, I have just bought Partition Magic so over the next couple of days we will try things out.
Thanks again

This is nothing to do with your thread, but do you know if G4tmb is still on the air??

You can also try just deleting or renaming in the windows directory this fools the PC into thinking that no windows system exists and thus allows you to install win98se without losing any of your prorgrammes.

I do not believe I know G4TMB personnally, but I will try & find out for you or at least some info.
