  swapper 23:32 08 Dec 2003

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?

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


That will get you going installing WinME.
