Is it possible to install win XP upgrade using windows ME uprgrade CD as the qualifying product??

(My only full version of windows is win 95)

Are you going to (a) start with a reformatted (blank) hard drive or (b) do an "over the top" upgrade.

If (a) I'm afraid I honestly don't know. If (b) it should be possible. I did this over ME which was an upgrade from 98. If you choose this option the XP installation does not ask to "see" your previous Windows CD.

Thanks VoG,

I'd much prefer a clean installation. Overlay upgrades are never as stable (in my experience) as clean installs.

Knowing MS, it is likely that it would reject an upgrade CD. It would be interesting to know if anyone has tried it.
