Have decided to do a fresh install of windows, as i have just added a second, larger harddrive, and think its about time i did a fresh install.
The pc is an Compaq Presario, and the c drive is split into ,c and d ,,, D being the small partition holding the operating system, in this case xp home.
I have my original xp pro disc from my previous pc and would like to install this , instead of using the HP recovery discs, as they have a lot of crap on their install.
Question is,,,, Can i format the D partition, and then install xp pro onto the newly formatted D partition, without losing any data on the rest of the drive ??????
Will there be any conflict with xp pro being the fresh install, when the pc was previously using xp home ???
I cant see there being any problems doing it this way,,, but would like some re assurance from the people in the know !!!!
Many thanks in advance. kev.
