I'm thinking the obvious no, because they are two completely different operating systems. From my experience, Windows ME was horrible.

No you can not use XP to recover ME. XP was a hybrid of the 9x platform and the NT paltform. While ME was strictly 9x platform.

2 different OS's 2 different kernels. No way it can be done.
