Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Put in your XP install CD and choose that option when it asks you
Posted on Sep 10, 2010
Hello sir and Windows user, setting up Windows on your hard drive is easy, but there is a better way to setup Windows so you will never have problems later, like back up and searching for flash drives (especially XP users), So before you start setting up Windows, I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2 (or 3) partition, one for the system (usually this is drive C:), one for your data (this is drive D:). Partitioning simply divides your hard drive to several sections, the main advantage is in case your windows system goes bad, or get infected by a virus, you can easily back up your important documents, simply copy all your important files to drive D: (drive D: is not erased if you setup Windows on drive C:)
To create a partition, on an XP setup, using a 160GB hard drive, divide your 160GB Hard Drive to 2, Press C to create a partition see picture. 80GB for windows system files and 80GB for data files.
Never setup the entire Windows on drive C: alone. create 2 partition. So before you choose where to setup Windows, there is an option to create another partition, input how much storage space you need for the partition in our example 80GB on a 160 GB drive. then proceed to setup Windows on drive C:. (at this point there are two drives, C: and D:)
On Windows Vista, the backup is automatic, but then again, its much wiser to partition your hard drive.
