try this .assuming the OS you want to replace is still working ,and providing its in the boot list
go to Run type "msconfig" go to boot tab and delete it from the box in that tab.
giving its a netbook you are working with ,what are you using to install the new OS, a usb thumb drive or a usb dvd rom ,you might just need to go to the bios and select the install device as first boot device
when i google all or most of the info on Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] pertains to windows server 2003
if you are erasing everything and you're sure you do not want anything and have all the drivers when you format you can either go to bios F2 and change boot sequence to have cd as first boot in the order and nowdays you can hit F12 on boot and will give you the option. the Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] should never be seen for a format operation.
im experiencing the same problem! I format my system and when reinstalling Windows 7 I got a message "windows set up EMS enabled". Thats the only option there, when I click on it the process start over. If i ignore it nothing happens. What should I do? Please help! Thanks

I've been having a similar problem. Trying to install Windows 7 on a Windows Vista computer. Vista was running fine but wanted to upgrade it, which should be simple. I've done the same thing countless times on other comuters without a problem. So I put the Win 7 install disk in the optical drive and the install fails while windows was "installing files". Ran all the system checks to make sure there was no problem with the optical drive, memory, etc., and the install still stops mid stream telling me there was an I/O error. I can only think it's beause of the [EMS ENABLED] note on the "boot from disk" screen. Research tells me the EMS designation has to do with a machine that's set up as a server...which this one was not, and I haven't yet figured out how to change that. Is it in BIOS? If so, where, and how do I get to it?
