  • Quick Win ME upgrade question:

    Will ME upgrade to 2K Pro straight up, or will it require some reformatting?

    My friend has ME on her 700mHz P3 Laptop, and I offered to upgrade it to the more stable 2K Pro. I was just wondering if it will simply replace the OS, or will I have to save anything she wants to disc, reformat, and install.

    Thanks!

    No you cannot upgrade from ME to 2k, but you can go to any version of XP from it. You can always back up her files and do a clean install of win 2k.

      Whether you upgrade to 2000 or XP, its better to backup the data, reformat the drive and install from scratch.

      Otherwise the 2000 or XP installation will not be as stable as it could be.

        Agreed.

        Do a full clean install of 2K on your machine. Upgrades can get messy with old problems carrying over to the new system and creating new problems.

        BTW ME will upgrade to 2K
