Question about PC Desktops
This may not work, been a long time since I dealt with ME, but I do know that both ME and XP originally had Partition limit sizes below 130 GB. I think XP original partition limit was around 96 GB and I'm almost certain that ME's would have been less then XPs.
So my recommendation to start out with would be to partition your hard drive into 40 GB partitions before attempting the install of ME and make sure your partitions are formatted into FAT32 partitions as FAT32 was the scheme that ME was developed for and most used on.
Don't be afraid to partition to 20 GBs if the 40GB doesn't work. Partitioning serves a lot of useful purposes and should be used much more then it is as this one trick alone as done more to save data on a computer then probably any other trick around. Luckily for everyone virii/trojans/malware, tend to attack the C: partition where the active OS installation lies. Well over 90% of the time any data located on partitions other then the C: partition is recoverable even after a major crash caused by conflicting softwares or malevalent softwares.
