I upgraded from Me to XP and went for a dual boot arrangement with Me on "C" and XP on "D" on my second disk. I now want to remove Me and make XP the only OS, but I can't see an easy way to do this without re-installing XP on C. Add/remove programs does not give the option of removing Me. I could re-format C which would get rid of it but this will presumably also remove the Master boot record, so the PC won't boot after I do this. I can make an image of D and copy it to C, but this will also re-format C with same problem as above. Can't find any thing that helps on any of the help sites or microsoft. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks Dio-very helpful. That seems to cover all the issues I was concerned about. I will probably just delete the Me files and then shrink C--my main objective was to free up space on the disk. Having done this I might go a step further and copy my image of XP to a partition next to C then merge the two partitions using Partition Magic. This should preserve the key start-up files and end up with the main OS on C.
