yes, this is concerning me - having upgraded 98 to XP several years ago i well remember what an uphill chore that was. am in no hurry now, will research the model and all the drivers required before i make any move, don't want to swop a wobbly system which works okay for a pile of junk with a blank screen :-o
yes, i have my XP key number - the upgrade would have been used once and once only, unless there were hiccups then maybe twice.
half of me says its just a computer - wipe the drive and do a clean install, the other half of me says that this pc has never run 98, came with XP Pro, and might it freak?
btw my upgrade is XP Home and the pc is running XP Pro, but if 98 erases XP on installation i don't see it makes any difference, Pro or Home edition for the upgrade from the 98?
