I got a laptop from a friend and it is in german.
The Windows XP was installed in C drive.
We got a new original Windows XP English
versian and installed it with no problem. Later
I found out that it was installed in D drive,
and as i click the D drive it was advised not
to change anything in the folder. But the drive
being a much bigger capacity, i had wanted to
have my operating system in D drive.
Not knowing at that time that it was prompted
to install two XP on different drive, I wanted to
change it to C drive but not knowing how, just
I tried to repair XP using the option for the
set up CD but the task was not completed
due to some fatal error messages. As the English
XP wouldn't start I decided to re-install again,
instead of repair. It took the whole night, and it
didn't complete - showing 4 minutes left to complete.
Despite not fully completed, It runs now, but not
complete as in many programs are missing.
My question is can i re-install the same Windows XP
English on the D Drive again. Will it automaticaly delete
off the prior incomplete XP set up? Does the prior XP
affect the new installation. What's the best thing to do now?
I understood that we can't erase an operating
system (ME) if there is no prior version installed?
