Many times ms office service packs require files from the original cd. If that is the case you must have the original cd to install the service pack.

    if you have the original cd, you may have to re-install office xp first.

How to install windows xp


To install Windows XP :

Required items
1: Windows XP CD ( SP 1/2/3 )/ Windows XP setup in a USB drive ( please ensure that you have made the USB bootable or it won't be detected )
2: CD Rom Drive ( if you want to install by CD )
3: USB Drive ( if you want to install by USB )


For a fresh install , follow the following steps accordingly :

1: Insert the CD into the Drive and restart the PC.
2: Note that your boot settings in the bios settings are correct (i.e 1st Boot priority CD drive if you are installing with CD and 1st boot priority USB if you are installing with Pendrive ).

3: Follow the steps shown on the screen which will throw a couple of options and settings.

4: Click on ' Install a fresh copy of Windows ' when asked for.
5: Select the drive in which you want to install it , it will be formatted and new windows installation would take place in that same drive.
6: Set your date and time region , enter the serial key when asked for.
7: The whole process should take around 45 minutes.

You are done installing it..Congrats!

Kindly note that installing any version of Windows by USB is always quicker than installing by CD/DVD.

If you want to ask any other question , I am here.................

I bought a educationa CD's and while installing it on my home PC where i have installed winxp sp-2 2003 edition i get a error poping up stating this error "iexpress setup has encountered a problem...


Your WINDOWS XP SP-2 needs a WINDOWS UPDATE. make sure you are connected to the internet. then click "START", click CONTROL PANEL, then SYSTEM, and find the AUTOMATIC UPDATES TAB. turn on AUTOMATIC UPDATES. if the updates are already automatic, click the link provided in the tab that brings you to the windows update/microsoft update website. Click express settings. If an option POPS UP, saying "DOWNLOAD MICROSOFT UPDATES" click this option and allow your computer to download this UPDATE. if not, continue by clicking the EXPRESS SETTINGS, the windows website will check to see if your computer is UPDATED. You WINDOWS XP OPERATING SYSTEM should have SERVICE PACK 3, continue this process until ALL UPDATES are installed. You may be required to restart your computer to finish updates.DOING THIS will update drivers as well, which most likely needs to be done in order for the CD to work properly.

Problem downloading sp-3 for my xp sp-2 installation


well you could turn on windows update and have it download SP3 on its own, or you could get it directly from the microsoft website, but do know that if you are running the 64 bit version of XP you can't get SP3.

Can't get wireless card to install


This is strange, and it sounds like you've done everything right, but.....have you tried a reverse install?

Remove the card, un-install all the drivers and remove the device from the device manager if the uninstall doesn't do it.

Shut the machine down (turn it off)

Install the Linksys card in your available PCI slot.

Start the machine back up. When the Found New Hardware message pops up, follow the prompts from there instead. Your PC may be able to load drivers it already has. If not and if it asks for a disk, then use the CD you got with the card.

All of this assumes the card is ok to use with XP

Windows update KB954430 is always in the queue to be installed.


I had the same problem with Vista. You need to manually download the patch and run as administrator. It has worked several times with me. Try these steps:

  1. Download the patch KB954430 manually from microsoft. Save it temporarily on you're desktop. Just go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=96a4413c-5261-4f69-83d0-932c430abd14&displaylang=en

    or if you don't like clicking on links, google "KB954430" and click on the second link labeled "Download details: MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB954430)" at microsoft.com.

  2. Close Internet Explorer
  3. Right click on the KB954430 installation file that was just downloaded to your desktop (msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe)
  4. Select 'Run as Administrator'
  5. If you are asked, select 'Run' then 'Continue'.
  6. Select 'Next'
  7. Click on the 'Remove' icon, then select 'Remove'
  8. Select 'Finish'
  9. Follow steps 3-6 again.
  10. Accept License Agreement then click 'Next'
  11. Click 'Next' again
  12. Click 'Install Now' icon
  13. Click 'Finish'
And you're done. Hope this helps.
