1.there is a 9x to XP upgrade version availible.
2. It's usually not adviseable to do this as some stuff on 98 won't work on XP.
3. The following is an option IF you have a spare PC, FAT32 and capapable of handling greater than 8gb Hdd.
a. You'll need at lest a 10gb to 20gb Hdd.
b. format and partition the hdd with a 2gb or greater main (depends on your98se load to save). Create 2 more partitions, 6gb and 2gb or more. Do this on intended XP PC as FAT32 format.
c. copy all w98se stuff from old hdd as a slave on spare PC, to new hdd,as a slave on spare PC, to partition 1.
d. put new hdd into inteneded XP machine that can boot from CDrom or use W98 startup floppy to get CDrom drives initiated.
e. Put in XP standard home XP and follow instructions to install XP as a second OS, operating system, on partition 2 in FAT 32 format.
f. XP will initiate a boot menu to boot from W98se or XP. the 3rd partition is a storage one that both OS partitions can access. Note: you can't access w98 partition when booted into XP abd vice-versa.
I'm using Windows 98se at present and would like to upgrade to Windows XP Home Edition. Question:
How do I upgrade to XP without having to reformating my harddrive?. Can this be done or do I HAVE to reformat. Any idea would be helpful. thank you
