Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
Greetings I have the same computer which makes this a little easier I hope for understanding this process even on other computers it is all the same just different messages come up for each and everyone of them. Some go smooth and some just simply get complicated.
First you have to make sure that the disk you have of Windows XP Pro is legal and working it may be a bad disk. The install disk must be working properly. Also do to prior Windows installation which brought you to this point you will have to possibly use a formating program that does a complete erase of your hard drive. I use D/Ban Hardisk Eraser. Click Here
Once downloaded insert the disc into the CD or DVD drive on your computer and do a complete format it may take a while, then go ahead once that process is complete do another install making sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD Rom as your first boot device and the hard drive as the second boot option, under boot order options at the BIOS settings. Most likely this setting is probably already set to do this. If those two things are working the good Windows disk and a clean hard drive for a clean install. You should not have a problem installing the Windows Operating System software. Just follow the on screen directions.
