I don't believe Me --> XP is a valid upgrade path (ie you can't do it on any system). In which case a format and reinstall of the OS is the only option. Make sure you back up your data and boot from the XP CD instead of running it from Windows.

Oh, and by the way, DO NOT create a thread with the title "HELP", everyone in here needs help, we know that, or else they wouldn't post here. Try to be more descriptive, more people will look at your thread and you have a better chance of getting useful advice. Try something like "Need help upgrading from ME to XP", or "Me to XP Upgrade problem" etc

If your xp is an OEM disc it won't allow you to upgrade. If it's not OEM what's the exact error message.
