just back up anything important data you may have on you computer and then put in the xp cd and reboot computer and do a full install it will format and remove ME!

I tried, and it is asking me which partition to install on? Should I delete the
partition with win me on it, and if so will this hurt the computer or hard disk?
What kinds of things should I save from the hard disk?
Thank you for your help.

Well i cant tell you what to save on you computer ,but can add that only things you can reall save are file you created or downloded ,not programs you installed .
Like if you download music and have a burner you colud save the songs ,if you created word documents like letters or anything like that .if when you format the partition with ME on it all will be deleted/lost .
as for it hurting the harddrive the answer would be no ,unless the drive is about to die anyway .

Thanks for responding so quickly, ok, so I should delete that partition then
right? It recommends not installing 2 os on the same partition, and the other
one doesn't have enough space.

Should I save drivers? will I need them?
thanks again

you dont need to deleted the partiton just select format the partition ,choose NTFS file system when asked
you don't need to save drivers ,just persional data .
winxp has drivers for most every computer i put it on in the past few years .

so when it asks me which partition to install on, I should choose the largest one with
me? then it will ask me if I want to format? Is it still going to remove me?

yes ,to all questions .
After the format of the drive with ME on it all will be lost .and xp will install on that partition !
