Posted: 03-19-2005, 12:11 AM
I am go to restore my computer back to it's original state.
I have backed up my files. When I run the quick restore it is going to load
Windows
98. What do I have to do to load Windows XP Professional? Do I deleat
Windows 98 before loading Windows XP? the lastr Time I loaded this program
it would not work and I had to call Microsoft to get it to work for me. Is
there anything I can do to make the loading of Windows XP successfull?

Assuming that you have a retail XP Pro and not an OEM. Start Win98. At the
desktop insert the XP Pro cd. When the splash screen appears start the
Upgrade Advisor from the Other Tasks and make sure you identify and delete
incompatible programs and know which drivers you will need to update.
Resolve the issues then from the splash screen select Install. XP will
upgrade your Win98 installation. Follow up the upgrade by updating
drivers. Visit Windows Update to catch up with patches and service pack 2
if needed.
