Is it possible the message you received while install\upgrade was:
Setup Cannot Continue. Please Contact Microsoft Technical Support. (Error: 3E6h)
If so you may have an application that is not compatible with WinXP or there can be other issues.
Have a look at this MSKB Article

Let us know if that helps

Do you have a way to back-up what is important to you?

It is generally recommeded that you do not "Up-Grade" but do a clean install. The clean install will wipe-out anything you already have, hence the back-up.
It will however give far better results, especially if you are having problems with your WinME.
