I am new to this kind of thing
I have just got a second user system that I want to change from Windows ME to Windows 2000. How do I do it.I need none of the files from the machine.

You cannot upgrade from WinMe to Win2K, as WinME is the newer OS and
Win2K can't possibly know how to handle. You will have to perform a clean

Before proceeding, though, you'd better take a few minutes to see if
there are any Win2K device drivers available for your PC's specific
components. There may not be, if the PC was specifically designed for WinMe.
Have you made any effort to see if the PC is capable of supporting Win2K?
This information will be found at the PC's manufacturer's web site, and on
Microsoft's Hardware Compatibility List
(click here).

Also bear in mind that
computers designed for, and sold with, WinMe very often fail to meet Win2K's
much more stringent hardware quality requirements.

A supported upgrade path from Windows Me to Windows 2000 is not available because Windows 2000 was released before Windows Me, and upgrade capabilities were not included
