I have lost my wife's original MS WinME boot disk.
(am I in the .... with her?) :-))
I reformatted her HD and then realised that all I could find was the emergency start up disk.
Can anyone drag me out oo this mire that I am in please?

As you have net access click here this disk is a UK version and comes with CDrom support. Or you could make your CDRom the first boot device via the bios and it will install from there.

Don't quite understand the current situation and what you want to do. Do you mean you wish to install ME but have no ME OS disk? Or what?

Leo49, I have lost the ME system set up floppy disk, I have the I have the ME CD but can't reinstall WinME until I can replace the lost Boot disk.

Tim64, Thanks, I have downloaded (via my other PC) the two files that I need, at the moment I can't understand what I need to do next.
I read the text file but can't make sence of it at the moment.
Would you have any idea plese?

smegs, I have had a look at this link but I could not find anything relating to WinME?

click here and get the WinME oem file.

Extact to a floppy and put this into your disk drive.

Reboot and when you get to the C:\ prompt, insert the CD into its drive.

Then, depending on the CD letter, type

e:\setup

That will get you going installing WinME.

The above should clarify things for you.

swapper, it's there in front of you. Goto the link again, and it's the first LINE in "Windows and DOS Boot Disks".
