Install W98 on computer currently with ME from "new PC only" disk
Posted on 2004-04-08
Originally this computer came with w98, and I have the CD for w98 which is
marked "for new PC only". Later I had put ME on this PC, and that's how it is now.
Now I want to put w98 back on.
Trying the CD in the straightforward way says that "there is a newer version
of windows on this machine, setup will be disabled". Trying another way (making
the PC boot off CD) gets me further, but eventually says "this PC has windows
installed already, this PC is only for new PCs".
So, how do I do this? Its fine with me to totally format the disk and install from
scratch (all important data is off the machine). But how do I do this?
