Problem with PC bios not booting
If you are Windows XP bootable CD with u,
first u restart ur computer and change the boot priority in the BIOS setup . Then insert the bootable cd and restart computer.
When some message comes in the screen, regarding bootable cd, press any key for installation,
It will take some time to copy installation files, then configure computer hard disk.
Then u have to agree the continuation of installation by pressing F8.
It will ask u either to repair or install Windows
press appropriate keys for that.
It will show the disk partitions and lets u with options of creating ,deleting paritions .
if u want a partition, then select any large partition and press C and type the amount of memory(in MegaBytes) u want for the partition
After finishing creating partitions,
select any partition and press enter for Windows installation in that partition. and select "format and install" option . It will format that partition and restarts . there is nothing to do more .
After restarting , it takes about 40min to install(times inversly proportional to the processor configuration), it asks for the serial /product key fo ur windows bootable cd, and some general settings about time,time zone,username,passwords etc.
After that , Windows would get completely installed.
Then insert ur motherboard CD for installing driver for (audio,graphics,LAN etc)
Then ur system is ready with Windows.
Ask me if u have any difficulty while installing...
