Hi, i DO have windows 98 as well as an update version of WINXP, i was wondering if there is anyway of updating to XP without installing 98 first eg. after a format?

Install from the XP disk, it will ask for verification of a previous version, when it does put the 98 disk in and follow the instructions.

What you must do is:

Place your Windows XP disk in your CD/DVD drive then go into the BIOS and change the boot up sequence so that it boots from the CD/DVD Drive first.

Then you will be able to load XP and follow as I have posted above
