Restoring Win ME from HDD

  yogibear 06:52 10 Feb 2004

I want to restore windows fromm the HDD, don't want to have to do a format and reinstall, so I go to search, enter setup, and look for:


When I double click it, the setup screen loads, but then I get a message saying I haven't enough conventional memory to run setup.I am then referred to the setup.txt on the restore CD for further info, but I can't find anything about freeing up conventional memory.

I have a Celeron 900, with 256 mb RAM, 2 x HDD (80GB and 60 GB-80 is Master with 13 GB free space).

If all fails I'll have to wipe it and start again, but I have gone through this process dozens of times and it's usually so simple.

Any advice please?

What is running in the background? Try to ensure that there is nothing running that you don't need.

Also empty all temp folders, including the internet cache.
