PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows 98
Problem Application Name & Version:Windows XP
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:Blocking issues



I successfully upgraded from Windows 98 to XP and then
removed XP and went back to 98. Then I decided to re-
install XP but now I get a blocking issue saying "Other
Operating Systems Found. You cannot upgrade this Windows
installation to Windows XP, because you have more than one
operating system installed on your computer", which is not
true I only have Windows 98. Does anyone know why I can't
re-install?

Hi,

Are you using the same WinXP cd and cdkey?
You need the WinXP upgrade version because you already have an operating system.

Hi,

Are you running the upgrade from within Windows or booting off the WinXP cd?

Try booting off the WinXP cd (if your system supports it) to run setup.

You may need to change the boot device order in your BIOS setup.
