Hi all,
This might be a dumb question,but,how i do i uninstall winME in a dual boot situation with 2000 pro.

By not using a third party software such as Partition Magic,you will probaly create problems in the long run rather than reformatting the drive
Open the Control Panel,double-click the Add/Remove programs icon and the uninstall Windows Me program should be listed,highlight and selecct the remove button.

Remove Windows 9X From A Dual Boot w/Win2K
Remove the read only property from the boot.ini file,then open the boot.ini file using notepad.
Delete the lines refer to Windows9X
Then delete the Windows and Program Files folders from the Windows 9X partition,and delete the boot files-io.sys,msdos.sys,command.com and if necessary autoexec.bat and config.sys
