I used to have Windows ME, then I bought an XP upgrade. Then a truly horrific crash happened during a service pack upgrade, meaning that I couldn't get into Windows XP at all. I reinstalled Windows ME to "C:\WINDOWS.000" and everything went fine. I had a dual boot menu, even though XP didn't actually work. The thing is, I've just started fresh, formatted everything, the lot. I installed ME, upgraded to XP, and now I want to install ME as a second OS, but it's now coming up with something like "Setup has detected another version of Windows. Either replace your current OS or exit setup."
The only thing I can think of is that when Windows XP had the horrible crash, some files were deleted that Windows ME setup looked for to detect Windows, so it thought I had no other versions installed. I've asked a few people what these files are, and one said to rename "winver.exe" and "win.com" to any filename, and setup won't see Windows, but it does.
Anyone know which files I should be temporarily renaming?
