While installing XP, the system will prompt you after you accept the licensing agreement about what to do with harddisk available space. the options will be

  • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system (Quick)
  • Format the partition by using the FAT file system (Quick)
  • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system
  • Format the partition by using the FAT file system
  • Leave the current file system intact (no changes)
Select which ever file system you want and NTFS is more used in now-a-days, so select one option in them. Select the amount of hard disk you want to allow for each partition. Thats it .. you are ready to go to select one partition to install you xp
there is a link from microsoft which might help you with any other issues you may face while doing partitions.
hope this helps

71 years old, would like a step by step procedure to transfer the content of my computer to the hard drive, than i would like to remove & reinstall window xp. This would greatly be appreciated. Thank...


Transferring file from your computer to external hard drive is very easy, just copy and paste all the files you needed to the external hard drive.

Reinstalling Windows XP would be quite difficult. Make sure you have Windows XP installer CD and all the utility hardware driver of your computer e.g. Chipset driver, Sound driver, VGA driver, WAN driver, LAN driver and others. If you do not have the Utility drivers, just download the complete set of utility driver in the internet. Most of them are free to downloads.

Here is the procedure with video on how to reinstall the Windows XP operating system (step by step)

Yes, you can transfer free space , but resizing is a very risky operation if you don't fully know what you're doing. Just leave it like that and install the programs in the D partition.
