Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
According to me this is the safe method to format your pc or uninstall XP.
1> Backup all the neccessary files to some cd.
2> If you format your primary hard drive(the drive on which xp is installed) it will not affect other drives. the data in it will remain intact.
3>Or if you have to format your other drives then, delete all the files of other drives(the drive on which xp is not installed).
4> Try to delete as much files of your primary hard drive.
5> so at the time of format your 35 to 50 mb of hard disk gets formatted, which will definately increase your hard disk life.
Now continue with format steps:
1>Reboot your pc and press F8 or F5 (depends on the motherboard) you will get and option windows.....
1)Start windows normally
Like this.... from this select

You can remove service pack 2 from within add/remove programmes, you will not lose any documents, but you will lose the udated security patches which is not recommended. If you mean you wish to remove XP SP completely, obviously the files and everything you have installed on c drive will be deleted as you can only save docs etc within an operating system, as c: is just a partition on your hard drive the files reside within the operating system. If you are upgrading to another operating system my advice would be to use a dual boot system and install the other operating system on a seperate partition of your drive, but you would have to have a fair knowledge of pc operating system installation processes.
