Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
I just bought a brand new WD Sata Hard drive for my Dell Dimension 8400. I tried installing Windows XP Pro, then I attempted to install Windows XP Home. I got my new hard drive formatted but I can't get either operating system to install. Is there something I'm missing. I have boot CD's for both OS's but I am stuck right now. I can't do most of the options when I'm given them.
Install the XP Pro first, install the necessary drivers etc. Then after that load the other disk for windows XP Home install it choose the drive to install the OS, install the necessary drivers etc. you will see two operating system while going to boot section of the computer.
