[PPC] NVDA on Windows ME

Truthfully I don't know whether this would work, Those older Windows versions used different technologies than 2k/XP and above, so I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't.

I take it you are trying to do a clean install of XP on the hard drive?  You can actually do an XP clean install, and it will prompt you to put the Windows ME disk in to verify you own a qualifying upgrade.  The running order would be like this:

1.  Wipe hard drive.
2.  Inser windows XP disk and boot from CD.
3.  Do the install of XP, during the install it will ask for a qualifying product.
4.  Insert Windows ME disk, continue.
5.  It checks the disk and then requests the XP disk again.

Ensure you can upgrade to SP3 as soon as possible after the install, I would recommend downloading this separately to a USB stick etc because a lot won't work without it.

Hope this helps.

Hi Folks,
Does anyone know if the latest versions of NVDA will work on Windows Millennium Edition?
I have an Asus 701 netbook, and I have Windows XP registered to it.
I installed the XP as an upgrade, which required an earlier version of Windows.
I did all this years ago with sighted assistance, but I would like to use my Pocket PC to clean up Millennium before I install the Windows XP upgrade.
If not, how far back would I have to go with NVDA to work on Windows ME?
