I run windows 98se at the moment can i upgrade to XP Home without losing all my files and programs.
The easy answer is yes if you buy an upgrade package.Buif you are running (*se check themin. requirements first!
You *can* upgrade but you are better off saving off all your files etc you wish to keep and installing fresh as 98 and XP work on a different file system...the latter being more efficient.Alternatively..install XP on a partition if your PC is sturdy enough.
Yes if you install as an upgrade.
Yes I think you can. The XP CD has the capacity to either do a clean install or to update your OS to XP.I have done this with XP Pro myself so I imagine XP home will be the same.
Dreadful typing! Sorry.The easy answer is yes if you buy an upgrade package. But if you are running 98se check the min. requirements first! Have to agree with Spanneress about backing up but then you should always do that before any upgrade!
Well I have XP on a new DeskTop and New Laptop but Still think Win98se's better
only thing going for it is USB 2 support
I run a network with every thing from 98 first edition an that includes to versions of small business server, yes your right! no wizards!
You can convert the file system to NTFS by opening a command prompt window from the accessories list and typing the following:convert c: /FS:NTFSand follow the instructions.
Win98 gets the job Done without all the bit popping up. Do you want to this or do that, it eats disc space like there is no tomorrow. I am using 98 to type this. on plain old Dial-Up
