You can make a boot disk with ease by downloading the Windows ME program to make that disk from http://www.bootdisk.com

Follow the link to Windows ME and then Windows ME OEM, then run the downloaded program to make your boot diskette.

Make the boot disk and test it.

I do not help people fix this bug in Windows ME. But bootdisks are easy if you move forward.

And test it. If it works, you are done.

Best of luck.

Download it.

Put a freshly formatted floppy in the drive and double-click the bootme.exe file you just downloaded.

This will launch the process to create the startup floppy.

When finished... you have a bootdisk!
