Windows ME Startup

By mak15 ·
Hi all! My computer couldn't started up instead it stayed in Windows ME Bootup picture for a very long time, until I couldn't wait anymore. Try safe mode, it is the same. If I pressed ESC I received message of windows couldn't updated 1% from 2%(Something like that), the longer I waited, the more of this same message appeared. I ran scandisk and scanreg, no help. Will clean installation help? Please help! Appreciated for any comments!

Re-installing the OS over itself should work. Upgrading to Win2k should work as well. But make sure to keep the file system intact, do not let setup format or partition your hard drive or everything will be lost.

Hi, win ME has a recovery program (taken a **** of a lot of hard disk space!!!). All you need is the recovery diskette, and you're back !. I hope you have such a recovery disk. If not, let me now. I run ME too and have that disk.
Greetings.
