Hi, members of geek

I got help before to clean installed window 7, and the help was excellent, but I read the instruction to clean install for window xp home edition, and sound different than clean install window 7. I need step by step how to do a clean install in window xp home edition, if some one can give me some guidance and help.. please..

thanks for any help with this

Transit.

Ps.

the computer is a dell computer, old one. desktop,
is frozen for ever.
I not have the orinal CD recover or installation CD, I have some other window xp with the product key, this can affect the process?
any other information that you need please ask, and I respond as soon I can..

thanks again..

transit.

Hi, rshaffer61

let me said; thank you for try to help me with this, well, (sorry not remember this...) I guessing, the computer bring the system installed when I get it, I had two set of installation CD closed, the one that come when you buy a new computer for the first time. And answering you question, No just the computer that I try to clean install is what have that key.
