I was running Windows2000 but then installed XP Pro which installed itself fine but it kept the Windows2000 as a partition. The laptop - 1.2 MHz processor, 20 GB Hard Drive, DVD, and 256 Memory is hair-pulling out painfully s-l-o-w. Its driving me nuts...i mean it works but it is so slow....
Can you please help me with the following?
Either - is there anyway to delete the Windows2000 (this might speed up the laptop)? If this is possible I guess it would need to be done through the BIOS or other such ways - Im no expert here but can deduce what to do, I just need an authoritative person to help out
Or...to solve the problem.....if I get a new XP disc (cant find the old one) will it wipe everything else and install ONLY XP? I.e. give me the option to have One Partition for XP?
Thanks....am also toying with the idea to blitz the whole thing and slap ubuntu on the lappy.
Thanks for all replies/help - Really Appreciate it!! Lister from London!
