First you need to partition the drive, then format it, for XP use NTFS file system.... by the way.. if someone already set it up for you..why are you doing it again? Its supposed to be a one-time thing

HOW TO REINSTALL WINDOWS XP OR INSTALLING CLEAN COPY


How to reinstall Windows XP operating system or installing fresh copy of Windows XP on your computer.

If your Windows XP operating system had problem due to corrupted files, viruses problem or you want to upgrade your system. This procedure will guide you in reinstalling your current Windows XP or installing fresh copy.

After this installing process, you need all your hardware drivers like Chipset Intel driver, LAN driver, Sound driver, WAN driver, Webcam driver and others for the computer to be fully operational. Otherwise, do not proceed on reinstalling you operating system if your do not have those hardware drivers.

CDROM drive is required for installing Windows XP. If you don't have in your notebook computer, use external CDROM drive to connect in your computer using a USB cable.


1. To start with, you need to back up your in blank CD all your important files before you begin installation produre because all the data will be wipe out.

2. When ready, start your computer and when booting press F2 to
BIOS setting.

3. On BIOS menu, choose the BOOT setting and change the priority boot to CDROM, exit and save.

In some laptops, you can skip this BIOS setting process by repeatedly pressing F9 key or F10key when booting your computer and it will run boot priority on CD.

4. Once you exit from BIOS, you computer will reboot and a message will appear " Press any key to boot from CD", press any key to enter into WINDOWS XP SET UP.

5. Belows instruction messages will appear:

* To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER
* To repair Windows XP installation using recovery console, press R
* To quit set up without installing Windows XP, press F3

Press ENTER to initiate the installation.

6. You will go to Windows XP license agreement and press F8 to agree.

7. You will ask you if you want to REPAIR or REINSTALL the operating system. It will appear like this. Just press ESC to proceed.

A. To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R.
B. To continue installing fresh copy of Windows XP without repairing, press ESC.

From repairing your operating system, it will not removed all your files and other software installed in your computer including your hardware drivers installed. Just fixing the operating system.

For reinstalling the operating system, you need to back up all you files because it will wipe out all you datas in your computer.

8. After that, it ask you where partition you want to install the operating system. The message will display like this :

C : Partition1 [NTFS]
D : Partition2 [NTFS]
Unpartitioned Space

Use the directional key to navigate and choose C: Partition1 if you want reinstalling Windows XP and press enter.

If you want clean copy of Windows XP, you need to delete both partition by pressing L and install clean copy at Unpartitioned space. By these procedure, you will have C: drive only. D: Drive is delete.

9. After choosing the desire partition. this will appear :

* Format the partition using NTFS files system
* Format the partition using the NFTS file

I suggest to choose the first line which is the quick format. The 2nd line take too much time to install the operating system. Press to initiate the installation and it will be finish and reboot automatically. PART OF WINDOWS INSTALLATION IS FINISHED.

If you had interrupted installation which is asking for certain driver file, your CD installer maybe damage which cause files to be unreadable. Try to replace the new Windows XP installer CD to proceed and until finished installing OS.

10. Once it reboots, this time do not boot from CD or do not press any key to go to PART2 OF WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION PROCESS.

11. On the opening, regional and laguage option will appear, jus click next.

12. The it will ask to type your name & organization. Put you name and company if any and click next

13. Then, it will ask for CD key and type the 25 character CD key and click next

14. Then it will ask for computer name. You can change or leave it and click next.

15. Then, set your date and time zone and click next.

16. Then, it will ask you for workgroup and computer domain, just leave it and click next.

17. Now wait until the installation process end and it will again restart automatically.

18. Again, do not boot from CD and display setting will appear. Just click OK.

19. welcom to Microsoft Windows screen will appear. Just click next.

20. Helps protect your PC will appear and choose Turn on Automatic Updates ( Only if you install genuine Windows XP). Otherwise, I suggest to choose "Not right not" if you are installing copy only of Windows XP.

21. Who will use this computer message will appear. Just type your name on the first box and click next.

Also for your reference, here is the video for your convenient .



A thank you message will appear, Just click next and it is finished.

I hope it helps you and thank you for using FixYa !

How to install windows xp sp2 by using dr-dos


1. Check your BIOS to be sure your computer will boot from a CD. Enter the BIOS setup by pressing the "Delete" or F2 or "F12" key, or as directed at the startup screen, immediately after booting. Set the first boot device to "CDROM" or "DVDROM" instead of "hard drive" if it isn't already.

2. MS-DOS command prompt

Insert the Windows XP installation CD into your CD or DVD drive and restart the computer. When prompted, choose to start from the MS-DOS command prompt with CD support. The MS-DOS command prompt will appear in a moment.

3. Start SMARTDRIVE by typing "SMARTDRV" at the DOS prompt and pressing enter. You don't have to run SMARTDRIVE, but copying the files will be much quicker if you do. The computer will display the DOS prompt again.

4. Enter "CD I386" at the DOS prompt to change to the directory where the setup program starts.

5. Enter "WINNT" at the prompt to start Windows XP setup. The installation program will copy files to your computer and then display a message requesting to reboot.

6. Press the "Enter" key to reboot. The setup program will start again and check that your hard drive format is compatible with Windows XP. If not, it will guide you through partitioning and formatting the drive and then ask you to reboot once more.

7. Press "Enter" to reboot. The computer will restart in Windows XP mode and automatically start the Windows Setup Wizard to detect your hardware and finish the installation.

XP is obsolete and unless you have SP3, there are no drivers from Microsoft.
Go to hp.com and download the Win7 drivers. That will fix your problem, if they are available for your model.

    System continuously reboots after initial format and copying of the files.


    If there is jumper setting in your second harddrive set it to slave drive. And the first boot drive to primary. If these doesn't help your installer disk have a problem.

    Leave a comment if this doesn't help.

    Can't install XP


    It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

    Try running chckdsk.exe

    If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

    First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

    restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
    at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
    ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
    type winnt to start installing
    install as usual
