Hello Melita,

Sure. Were you wanting to setup a dual boot with Windows 7 and XP?

Hope this helps for now,

Good morning Shawn I m not going for dual boot. I have a second computer, a desk top with an Asus P5LD2 main board, in which I want to install Windows XP. I am predisposed towards XP, if you don't mind my saying so. I always preferred that to the later developments.

Regards,

Do you want to do a clean install of windows ( which will delete everything). More details on the computer would be great. Like is the an operating system on it?

Good morning Melita. I can understand that.

If you have your Windows XP installation discs, then it should be pretty straight forward. The links and video below can help show you more on how to.

Thank you all. I have loads of help here. A friend is sending me the XP professional that he no longer uses as an ISO file.
1. Would it be alright to install that?
2. If I don't do that, where would you recommend that I get it from?

Regards,

Do you have a key for Windows XP Professional?

Also, you cannot give reputation in the Chillout Room or News sections of Sevenforums.

Is this a branded OEM disk? (For example, Dell, HP, Gateway, Acer, Emachines, Compaq etc.)
