    Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP

    A clean installation consists of removing all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.

    To perform a clean installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:

    1. Back up all important information before you perform a clean installation of Windows XP. Save the backup to an external location, such as a CD or external hard disk.
    2. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
    3. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
    4. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
    5. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
    6. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
    7. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.

    If you have successfully installed Windows XP, you are finished. If these steps did not help you install Windows XP, go to the "Next Steps" section.

     

    Method 2: Upgrade to Windows XP

    This section describes how to upgrade to Windows XP from Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows 2000 Professional.

    Note Windows 2000 and Windows 2000 Professional can only be upgraded to Windows XP Professional. You cannot upgrade Windows 2000 to Windows XP Home.

    Important Before you start the upgrade process, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain the latest BIOS upgrades for your computer and then install the upgrades. If you update the BIOS after you upgrade the computer, you may have to reinstall Windows XP to take advantage of features such as Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) support in the BIOS. If you can do this, update the firmware in all the hardware devices before you start the upgrade.

    You may want to disconnect from the Internet during the installation. This step is not necessary, but disconnecting from the Internet during the installation helps protect your computer. For added protection, you may also want to enable the Microsoft Internet Explorer firewall. For more information, see the "Enable or disable Internet Connection Firewall" topic in your Windows operating system Help.

    To upgrade to Windows XP, follow these steps:

    1. Start your computer, and then insert the Windows XP CD into the CD or DVD drive.
    2. If Windows automatically detects the CD, click Install Windows to start the Windows XP Setup Wizard.If Windows does not automatically detect the CD, click Start. Then click Run. Type the following command, and then click OK:
      CD drive letter:\setup.exe
    3. When you are prompted to select an installation type, select Upgrade (the default setting), and then click Next.
