You can format XP and take necessary data on some disk or pendrive and then format it. And install your millenium in pc. Otherwise insert your millenium cd and reboot your pc. in bios select boot from cd option. Select other drive except in which xp is there. Then you will get 2 options of two operating systems. Select any one you want.

You should upgrade your computer to XP, ME is a horrible version unfortunately. It is about 150$ for a copy of xp and then you will have a copy forever. The printer unfortunately will not work with Millenium.

You will need to buy an original Windows 98 (or newer, such as Windows XP) installation disk and Certificate of Authenticity with 25-digit registration key, then use it to reinstall Windows on the laptop. Nothing from your home PC will do this for you, unfortunately. You can probably find a Windows 98 installation disk fairly cheaply on the internet.

Windows xp wont reload

This happens so much with upgrades! We think we are making our pc's better, and then find it doesn't like it. I am assuming you completely uninstalled millenium, then tried to load xp? If you did not, the registry still has parts of millenium on it, and is asking for this. You need to completely uninstall millenium first. You need to obtain mill copy, and select uninstall, then when done, put in your new xp disk and try again. Lilacgerry xxx
