You see what I wanted to do is basically install windows xp with all of my pci/agp components still connected, and than when xp's install is done just install the drivers for all of my components. Is what I want to do bad for my system or my components or is it ok? I don't want to ruin any of my cards or cause a bad xp installation. My sound cards instructions say the drivers should be installed prior to installing the pci card, but my video card instructions say install the agp card and than install the drivers so I'm confused. I don't want to damage anything and just want to install xp without taking out any cards.
Please give me some advice.
