Hello, Setup cannot uninstall Windows XP because the number of hard drives present after upgrading is not the same as the number present before upgrading. What does this mean? I had an external hard drive connected but have disconnected it and I cannot find it in the My Computer as only the "C" drive, floppy and CD drives are listed. I have the option of removing my previous operating system. What I really want to do is wipe the hard drive clean and go back to Windows 98.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Download and burn this program to a CD. Boot from the CD and it will delete everything from the hard drive.
