Operating System Version: Prof. 2000 & Home XP
Problem Application Name & Version: Home XP
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

I bought an old computer from work, it had Windows 2000 on it. I loaded Home XP (had it on my home computer) because I thought it would be nice to have the same operating system on both. Now the work computer is not working right and I want to remove XP and have only  2000 on it. I am going to try to create a wireless home network.
Help! I don't want to spend lots of money to take it in and get reformated....

How did you install the XP into the machine? If you used the XP installation option to install into a spare FAT32 partition, then it's a fairly simple matter to delete the XP partition and edit the boot.ini from Win2k.
If you used NTFS, then things become a little more complicated Sad
You may well be best advised to go to a specialist Win2k newsgroup, such as
and ask there - make sure that you include the details of how you installed XP in the first place (and whether you're using a third-party boot manager)
