I upgraded from WinME to WinXP on a PC100 Systemboard, 500Mhrz, but it can't run properly (can't use modem or turnoff computer, etc). I'd been adviced to upgrade BIOS. Then I couldn't reinstall WinME or Win9X, so I have two questions:
a. Is any free BIOS upgrate available?
b. How can I format the hard disk and start from scratch with WinME?

Any help is greatly appretiated

If you are having problems with Windows XP then your best option is to Uninstall Windows XP. This will revert back to Winows ME.
To do this go into the Control Panel and double click on Add/Remove Programs.In the list of programs click Windows XP and then the Change/Remove button.
Note: If any programs have been modified since the upgrade to Windows XP, you will receive a warning message. Review the warning, and then, if you want to continue with the uninstall process, click Continue.
Click Yes to confirm that you want to start uninstalling Windows XP.
Your computer will restart automatically. Be sure that any floppy disks are removed before you click Yes.

Windows XP will warn you of any issues before the uninstallation process begins. To correct the problems, repeat changes after Windows XP has been uninstalled.

Hi F55,
A>you don't need to flash the bios in order to install any version of windows.
