Chapter 2. Installing and Updating Windo... > Installation Secrets and Shortcuts

Installation Secrets and Shortcuts

One of the most common frustrations associated with previous versions of Windows is having to reinsert the CD every time you add or change a feature. In Windows Millennium Edition, the Setup program takes this possibility into consideration and automatically copies all Windows Me Setup files to your hard disk. Later, if you choose to add or remove a feature, Windows first looks to the hard drive for these files and prompts you for the CD only if the files in question are damaged or missing.

Tip

If you need to reinstall Windows Me for any reason, you can do so from the hard drive. Open the folder C:\Windows\Options\Install and double-click the Setup icon to begin. If you ever need to take the system in for service, most support professionals will be able to find your Setup files here immediately.
