Still Not Clear...

In reply to: formatting

Files expired? What are you talking about? Is this a legal version of both operating systems?

Are you trying to install two different operating systems on the same hard drive? Maybe as a dual boot? What type of file format was on the machine before? (NTFS or FAT32?)

Or are you going to only install one operating system? ARe you having troubles decided between XP and 98? Maybe two different operating systems ON two different computers?

How big is the hard drive? How fast is the processor? How much RAM is installed?

As asked before, tell us EXACTLY what you want to do.
