the XP instructions carefully, and follow the directions carefully. If left alone, XP will leave what is already on the disk. She needs to choose full format to NTFS, one partition, and install XP as the one OS.
Hopefully, her PC will handle XP as it needs more resources. She will also need to reinstall EVERYTHING else including audio and video drivers, modem, NIC, programs, emails, favorites, etc. as a full format of XP will clean the HD. But it's the best way. Leaving an old OS on the drive is just asking for problems.

My friend has got ME on her PC and wanted to upgrade to Xp, however she installed the full version and has now got 2 drives. XP has created another drive (D:) and is low virtual memory whereas drive C has got about 50gb of memory, please advise what to do next? She only wants XP, and not ME!
