Having recently had to re-install XP from my OEM disk (reformatting c: drive) and not having used any partitions in the past I lost all my installed programs etc (but did have important doc/pics backed up ). It was more annoying than anything else having to re-insatll all my programs.

Please bear in mind I am a Hardware orientated person and I am trying to learn so go easy.
