I have tried to install Millenium Me over Windows XP and now experiencing all sorts of problems with starting up and closing down. Amongst the error notices that appear, I am told that some of the Windows XP configeration files cannot be changed to suit Millenium Me. How do I remove Windows XP without causing problems to other programs. Please help me.
Many thanks Junio

I think you should reformat and clean install ME but backup anything that you want to keep.

you cant retro install an OS without removing the newer one first.

Not possible

You cannot expect an earlier program to be able to cope with something that came later - in effect that is what you are trying to do. You might just as well have trieds to install '95 over the top of XP.

Frankly, I wonder why you would want to bother. XP is far superior to ME, and far more stable.

Removing Xp(ntfs)and returning to a previous O/s is possible ..And can be very time consuming .however Not only do you require complete removal of Xp but will require Motherboard Bios to be reset to defaults/fail safe defaults..(level of difficulty depending on type of Mother board ) consult mobo manual for correct method. Boot to floppy of O/s of choice Fdisk the drive,Format and install O/S.. BUT Do Make sure you find all drivers that are required ,Or at least where to down load them from..

Junio may have chosen FAT 32 on the XP install for all you know.

Either or you cant do it.

Accept you've made a cock-up, scrap it and start from scratch.

Please note I agree with your post...

BUT as posted above if file system is FAT 32 or NTFS Methods the same as posted above .. & what leo49 says is the only option for this situation ..
