Step of installing windows xp professional


Step 1. Basic Installation Start the computer and insert your windows xp cd. After a few seconds, the screen will clear and you will see a 'press any key to boot from CD' prompt. Press the any key..... he he, there is no 'any' key, this is just a test ;)
Press any key to start the install. The prompt allowing you to install will time out after about 4 seconds, so if you don't hit any of the keyboard keys you will have to reboot to install.
The installer program will begin copying files from the CD.


The 'welcome to setup' screen appears. Press enter to continue. View the licensing agreement and hit F8 to continue.
The installation program will then search your drives for any prior installation of XP. If it finds one, you will be given the option to repair it, which essentially reinstalls most system files while leaving the registry and installed programs intact. Otherwise, move forward to the partitioning and formatting section of the install.
The initial screen shows the hard disks connected to your system, and any partitions that may already be created.
A partition is simply a section of the free space on your hard-drive. Operating systems use partitions to logically assign drive letters. For example, if you have a single 40GB drive, you can allocate all the space to a single partition, but then you could only have a single drive (C:) visible in Windows.
If you chose to divide that 40GB into 4 different 10GB partitions, you could have 4 individual drives (say C:, D:, E:, and F:) within your Windows environment. Essentially, Multiple partitions allow multiple logical drives within a single physical drive, and can even allow different operating systems to co-exist on one drive if desired. Once a partition has been created, it must be formatted to be useful.

I have 40gb hdd.need a partition scheme for windows xp such that i have 17GB gb for my games THANK YOU


Using the Windows XP installation disk, procede to install windows normally. In the windows setup you will get a list of options. Choose "C" to create partition. Create a 20GB partition. When that is done create another 20GB partition unless you plan on installing another Operating System such as Windows 7 later. If you want to keep XP and install Windows 7 at a later date on the same PC, then Set up 2 - 10GB partitions for Operating Systems and 1 - 20GB partitions for games. Make sure to install the games on the 20GB drive letter only so that Windows has enough space to run.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

Dual boot Windows and Solaris


Hi there.
The only way to dual boot XP and Solaris is to reinstall XP, but seeing as you don't want to uninstall XP the only other option would be to install a virtual machine on XP.
VMware Player is a great app to install Solaris as a virtual operating system, this gives you opertunity to use both operating systems at once!!!

Yes, use another system cds. Once you get windows installed you need to goto start, run and type in regedit. In the new window you need to click on HKEY_LOCAL_machine then click on software then click on microsoft then click on windowsnt thenclick on current version then click on wpaevents then right click on oobetimer that is on the right side of the window. Click modify and then in the new window simply hit the del key. Now close that window and the regedit window. Go back to start click run type in this:

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

Windows Xp installation in compaq laptop


Buy an XP cd if you are going to do it legally, reboot your laptop and boot off of the CD, The XP installation screen will then appear, you will have to choose which partition you want to install XP on, first you may need to delete the partition currently there, then create a new partition. use the default size because you need to leave at least 8 mb free space, then its just a matter of going through the installation steps with your serial code, location, and other details.
