    I have win xp loaded as a second operating system on my computer, it is on a partition alone.
    I was trying to be prudent after getting win me and really not liking it.
    I found that I really like it but now would like to remove it.
    I have a lot of flaws on my win 98 se (which I really loved most because of "system file checker") mostly programs I can not get rid of as they are imbedded into the operating system or no longer have their uninstall logs or something... anyway I want to clean it all up and then upgrade.
    so I need some real help.
    any ideas how to remove this secondary operating system so I can leave the win98 se intact and win xp for a later day when I am ready?

    What did you use to make the partition? If you used partition magic you can format the partition that you want to get rid of and merge it with the one you want to keep. Or format it and keep it as a formatted partition if you are going to be using it again. You can also delete the partition all together if you are using partition magic. I am refering to partition magic pro 7. Not sure about versions before that.
