New PC, ME with old BIOS by William B. Lurie
That's the best I can describe it. I have a hard drive from my old PC with ME on it. It won't boot in Normal Mode in my new PC, I suspect because it was mad with a different BIOS. However, it boots just fine in Safe Mode. Is there a way to get around this? (I hope I made it clear enough). Thanks.

Clean ME by canna
Hi, As I prepare to receive my new machine and move to XP, I'm going to sell my current PC running an OEM version of WinMe. It didn't come with a winME disk and I'm wondering is there a way to clean the PC and leave it as if ME has just been installed. Any ideas? Many thanks,
