Windows XP installation

I have an older Gateway that has been updated and has Windows ME installed, I want to install Windows XP home version but am not sure how to proceed. Should I remove the ME before installing or can it be installed overriding the ME installation?

Make sure you back up any important files on that gateway machine before you install Windows XP Home because you may lose some during installation. You definitely will lose files if you chose to format the hard drive during your installation of XP which is recommended. After you backup, everything should be a breeze.

Can not load older software on new pc with windows 7


The software Broderbund 3D Home Architect Deluxe 5.0 might works with the earlier version of Windows and does not work with the latest version. Check out the system requirement for the software and its says its for windows 98, 2000 & Xp hence the updated drivers for the suite are not released hence it would not be able to install it on New windows version.

Windows xp home edition reinstall


If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
