Have you tried simply booting from the ME installation disk and starting the install, or is ME having trouble installing over the existing XP partition?

but im still having trouble installing that i forgot how to format the c drive

i think its have trouble installing over it


i need help at this moment because in formating it now

We're not an 'always on call' free service, I'm afraid, and if you start doing something before you actually receive assistance you could end up with a mess.

If your Windows XP installation has been formatted to NTFS file system, then you'll need to delete the partition and create a new FAT32 partition in its place before you can format it for Windows 98 or Windows Me.

Why would you want to get rid of a really good Windows version and replace it with a crappy one anyway?

i am having problems with it

how do u creat a partion?

Boot from a Windows 98 startup diskette, use 'FDISK' to delete the partition(s) and then to create a new one(s) in its place.

Then format.

Hi and welcome to Daniweb,
You have hijacked a very old thread (Aug 29th, 2004)
Please start your own thread and try to be clear as to what you have done.
I have formatted XP successfully = I have deleted my windows XP instalation from my drive by formatting it.
I am unable to open any CD.. You now do not have an operating system to open any CD.

Go to the thread at the start of (Windows NT / 2000 / XP) and read about formatting and installing XP. If you still need help after that, start your own thread and supply a lot of information about your machine, OS and what you are trying to do.

Good luck.
