I am new to TechSpot and want to say they have helped me with so many problems. For example, when trying to troubleshoot a problem if I search tech spot they always offer a solid response. FYI Check Install Compatibility when installing XP to see if your system has the capacity. After fighting an error message setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration for almost a day, I just thought to try checking the System Install Compatibility at the install dialogue menu and i found that xp cannot upgrade from Windows ME! Who knew, maybe you, but not me?
