removing windows98se for windows xp

  morganmight 12:51 01 Jul 2003

I am currently running windows 98se,i have formatted my hard drive several times but have always re-installed W98se using the boot disk to begin the installation.
My question is,after formatting my hard drive,do i still use the same boot disk to begin installation of WXP.
Incidently,i know you can install WXP over the top of W98SE,but i want to do it from a fully formatted hard drive.

Use the Win XP CD to boot with. Not the Win98SE floppy.

simply use your win 98 startup disk and use the option "Start with CD-rom support" and at the E:\ prompt or whatever your CD is insert the win XP disc and type setup.exe and press enter.

Yes you can use any startup disk for any windows. just that some have diffrent tools than others.

moranmight - you don't need any other disks other than the Windows XP one. Set the BIOS to boot from the CD Drive.

Stuntmaster - stop hijacking other threads. Bump your own.
