I am running Windows ME and want to upgrade to XP Home. I finally got the upgrade advisor to report though it took about 4 hours!!
Installation of XP begins and gets to preparing installation quite quickly saying approx 81 minutes to completion. 3 or 4 hours later it appears to be about 3/4 through this process and 79 minutes to completion. Another 2 hours goes by with no apparent change. What is going wrong?

If you are just installing XP over the top of Me, then you may have problems. It is recommended that you do a clean install of XP, doriena.

Probably best to do a clean install of ME 1st and then do the upgrade to XP
