1st Back up all needed files as below is a full format for XP

ok here is the easy way with XP

2nd start your computer, when it starts start tapping the delete key. You will now be in the BIOS, go into standard set up and select 1st boot drive as cd-rom. Save settings and exit.

Now place the windows XP upgrade disc in drive, this will then show you the XP set up.

When asked pop in the ME disc to validate an older version.

You will also be asked for which format you want, select NTFS with a full format.Once formatting is done, restart.Leave XP disc in drive.

Upon restart, start tapping delete key again, enter the standard BIOS and reset your 1st boot drive to HDD.Save settings and restart.

Now XP will set up your computer, this takes about 1 hour
