    Hi,

    A possible issue can be that the disk is not able to be read after a certain point and would keep the installation progress bar at a stand still till it can read the rest of the data. Try using a disk cleaner or new Windows XP Pro SP3 disk

Would like to know if there is a way to install GIga Pocket without wiping wIndows Professional XP3 clean just to install Windows Xp Home Media Edition


XP Home Media Edition is technically a customized version of XP Pro. If you want to install the two versions side by side, you'll need to Dual Boot the computer, which requires changing the partition. There are various utilities out there that can do this, but it may end up causing problems for the older version of Windows. Do some research on setting up dual booting and decide if you're comfortable going that route. If not, consider having a technical friend or professional doing it for you.

How to install window XP


This procedure demonstrates how to install Windows XP Professional. The procedure to install Windows XP home edition is very similar to the professional edition. Since Windows XP Pro is more advanced operating system, it will be used to demonstrate the installation procedure.
The best way install Windows XP is to do a clean install. It is not difficult to perform a clean installation. Before you perform the installation I recommend that you check to ensure that your hardware is supported by XP. If your hardware is not on the compatibility list you can check your hardware manufactures website to download the drivers for Windows XP. Save all the necessary drivers onto floppy disks or CD before you start the installation.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

I can't find back/up wizard in system/tools on Dell-C521


You probably have XP home edition

Although Windows XP Professional Edition and XP Home both ship with NTBackup, only XP Pro installs NTBackup by default. You can install NTBackup for XP Home by performing the following steps:
  1. Insert the XP Home CD-ROM.
  2. Navigate to the VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP folder.
  3. Double-click the ntbackup.msi file to install NTBackup.


I found these instructions here

Destructive recovery


Yes you can format the current partition your windows is on using the standard XP home disk and have a completly fresh clean XP install

If your starting the XP home CD in windows itself then you will get 2 options;
1 is to upgrade your current installation
2 is a 'New' installation

its the New installation you need...


If your starting the XP home CD from the CD boot menu [when you restard your PC] at the 3rd or 4th screen it will ask you the partition options;

1 is to 'Leave the current file system in tact'
2 is to 'Format (quick)'
3 is to 'Format'

you do not want option 1 that will keep all your old windows files etc [and the malware]

option 2 or 3 is what you need for a fresh install (2 is faster and will be fine for you)

If you need more help let me know...

I need to up grade my windows 2000 to windows xp


First you need to make sure that your computer meets the following specifications:
- 300 MHz (or higher processor)
- Intel Pentium/Celeron or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron compatible processor.
- 128 MB of RAM (or higher)
- 1.5 Gigabytes of available hard disk space
- Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor.

I am sure that your computer likely meets all of these requirements, but I posted them to save you the grief if by chance it does not meet one of the above!

In a moment I will post a link to a website where you can purchase an upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP home edition (Service Pack 2).

Once you have the software, start up windows 2000 and place the disk into the CDROM drive. You should be given an option to upgrade to XP. (make sure you start the disk while you are on the Windows 2000 desktop with all programs closed). After XP is installed if your computer does not have an Antivirus program installed, I strongly recommend either installing Norton Antivirus or AVG. AVG is free and can be downloaded from http://www.avg.com/. Then make sure that your windows firewall is turned on. (It should be automatically) After this go to Microsoft.com and download service pack 3 and any additional updates needed.

The upgrade version of Windows XP home with service pack 2 can be purchased from newegg.com by clicking on this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16837116194.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

I have two operating systems on my hard drive.


Hi,

You can manually disconnect the IDE/SATA cable temporarily from your motherboard (the one with NT PRO & XP HOME), then you can cleanly install a Windows XP on your new Hardisk. And after installing, you can re-connect the other hardrive on your computer and format it under your NEW Windows XP, be sure to set the BIOS BOOTUP sequence that you boot on the right drive.
