    I am new to a first line computer tech post and mistakenly updated a windows ME installation with Windows XP! I erroneously placed an XP home recovery CD into machine and in efect part loaded this. I now get a choice of boot OS on start-up. How can I remove all signs of XP home from the machine and return to clean and normal Windows ME.

    If u have installed win xp the it will on your Hard drive can u boot up to win xp?

    Basically u have a dual boot system now, so u will need to delete the win xp folder. unless u have done an upgarde which is not the case. U can edit the the boot.ini file to get rid of the dual boot.
