Using the Windows XP Upgrade to Upgrade a Windows 98, 98 SE, or Me Upgrade
Last updated: 12/15/01

Q.  Can the Windows XP Upgrade be used to upgrade a computer with the Windows 98, 98 SE, or Me Upgrade installed?

A.  XP will upgrade a Windows 98, 98 SE, or Me upgrade.   However, I would do a clean install.  That is, fdsk the drive to take it down to bare metal, create and format new partitions, and then install. That can be done with the Windows XP upgrade and the Windows 98 upgrade CD.
