    I think I will for a way to install an XP upgrade without a bootable cd drive on my old laptop, maybe cloning an existing xp install on another pc or something.

    Do some searching, but AFAIK you canot upgrade ME. You need to do a fresh install of Win2K. (you wouldn't want any traces of ME in the mix anyway)

    ME came out after 2000, so you are correct in saying win me --> win 2k is not a valid upgrade path.

    You are also correct about wanting any traces of ME in the mix. Hello (silent 'o') I would destroy the harddisk and throw it away once it's had ME on it.
