Windows ME (bootable CD?)

By shaun ·
I recently purchased windows ME (full) and discovered that i couldnt get the CD to boot, is the CD supposed to be bootable like the Windows 98 CD or not. Furthermore I am concerned with the fact that the windows file on the CD is called 'win9x', not'Windows' or 'WinME' as i expected, these charecteristics lead me to think that an upgrade cd was placed in the box instead of a Full copy, can anyone tell me different?

It's not bootable. But the good news is that the WinME folder that has the setup files is called Win9x

If it is an OEM version it is bootable. If it's the retail then it is not bootable. The name is correct and you did not get the upgrade
