I'm trying to install Windows ME on a system but I get the error durring setup of windows ME OEM

Your computer already has an operating system installed, which cannot be upgraded by this version of setup. You need to obtain the Windows ME Upgrade

SU0168

Is there a way around this?

Other than wiping the drive first, I don't think you're going to get around it unless you can scam an upgrade edition off of someone.

I always recommend putting the OS on it's own partition, and user files on another. That way OS upgrades/reinstalls don't put your data at risk.

Usually this comes from a couple of things...either the CD is not reading the disk right or you have a bad stick of ram.
