Try and get hold of a Windows 98 or ME boot disk (from someone who has 98 or ME) and then use it to boot up with CD-ROM support. That way you can start the ME installation from the DOS prompt.

No probs. Just hope you can locate a 98 or ME system or someone with a bootdisk already.

Hey Kronic, I have a question, are both partitions in the same HD? if yes, you might not be able to install ME on XP especially IF the 1st partition is the NTFS one. WinME setup will refuse to install if the 1st partition is NTFS because the boot files for ME are placed on the 1st partition.
