I have been given a computer from the college I work for. The memory has been wiped. I have Xp, but I can't install it because the computer asks for a boot up disk. I have a floppy with Windows ME, but while it seems to recognize that it's ME, it won't install it. I have just enough PC knowledge to be dangerous, and I'm getting frustrated that I can't make this work. I hope someone can help! Thanks!

Hi bcoo,

Welcome to Geeks 2 Go.

When you say you have XP, do you mean you have an XP installation disc?
Is it just a recovery disc for another PC or is it a full XP installion disc with xp key?

Once i have this information, i can start to assist you

Regards,

Usetobe

Upon bootup of the computer, pres F1 or Delete to go into the BIOS and change the boot order so that cdrom is first, saving changes and exiting. Then, insert the cd into the CDROM and reboot computer, the installation should begin, if not then I would guess that you do not have a bootable copy of windows.
