Excuse me for asking, but why the hell are you using 3 Windows OSes? Either get rid of 2K or XP. You don't need both, since they both have relatively the same core technologies.
Heh, Windows XP is even more difficult. With Windows XP you have to have the entire OS in order for it to function. I wiped the WINNT directory of my ME/XP system once and it complained about files missing from the C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32 directory at boot-up(before the OS selection screen). With a ME/2000 system on FAT32 you can simply delete the WINNT directory to get rid of Windows 2000 but XP isn't that easy. I guess it's a one-shot deal. If you install it you have to stick with it.Originally posted by Xenomorph
Wanna know an "impossiple" mission? Install Win2000 with NTFS
and try to remove it Every new version of Windows is harder & harder to erase... Luckily I managed to remove it and install my faitful 98 SE... Me kinda sucks...
The SE doesen't overwrite the boot sector! at least my chase...
IF you install SE and delete WINNT directory it will still require files
from C:\ boot.ini, nt????.??? and others... What was the parameter to format boot sectors ?
Not sure if this is helpful but...Originally posted by Gk1986
I'm thinking of installing a different language OS (Window 98 Chinese) on my other computer (Window 95 English) so I can type chinese on at least one computer. Would the installation erase everything on my computer since it's a different language OS? (I know I sound pathetic, but please help!) :heh:
