Hello, how to install windows xp?

These steps are similar to other Windows OS installations (Vista, Windows 7).
Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.

I have a problem with my Local Disk C .


It sounds like you formatted the Utility Partition of the HDD and loaded the OS to that partition. Check disk Management, see if you have both a C: and D: listed for hard drives. If you do, that is the likely answer.
If disk management shows only 1 HDD and a lot of unpartitioned space, then you made a disk partitioning error and will need to remove and repartition the drive then reinstall

After fdisk and format of hdd install of os freezes after 2min. when it says windos is starting, tried differant versions of windows does the same thing!!!! Please help!!!!!!


PXE media failure means the system is trying to boot via Network card not your hard drive. When you performed fdisk then formatted the disk, you might have not selected an active or logical partitioning to support the OS. Run the PSA diagnostics by holding the Fn button before turning on your computer. If it gives you an error, it means your HDD has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If it freezes during the the loading of files during the installation, it means that your RAMs are bad because the windows loader dumps all the information to the RAM chips. If it does hang during the installation of files, two points of failure are to be looked upon, the RAMs and the HDD. I recommend you reset the BIOS to the factory settings as to reset the boot priority so it does boot to HDD first, not to any of the bootable drives available on your computer.

Deleted Vista Recovery Partition. Now XP installer can't read HDD


if you have created recovery disk before the deleting of the recovery partition u can format the drive from your bios and create a new recovery partition using the recovery disk if not if your pc has crashed and your recovery partition is gone u will have to get a new operating system software but if your pc is still stable just run the recovery manager and restore to factory settings and it will put recover partition back on your hard disk

It is a pretty simple process

Create 3 partitions on the HDD (Vista requires 20 GB minimum)

Install XP on 1st, Vista on 2nd, Linux on 3rd

You'll choose the partition to install on during the install process of each OS, you can create the partitions during the XP install
