I had a massive problem with loading windows at startup on a laptop running ME-crashed about a dozen times, so loaded XP Home SP1 on it from my main computer(recovery disc).The laptop was running well- then up popped a flag telling me that I couldn't activate windows (I understand that this is a Microsoft piracy issue).
How do I reload ME? Do I reload it from the ME CD and will it give me the option to reformat the drive?
