I want to reformat my p.c, but the cd i have for it is just a restore dvd/cd i have used this before but what i want to do is use the windows xp cd with sp2 already with it its new,
i understand that the restore cd i have is especially for the p.c and the os is windows xp home but the new cd i have is professional, but what i really want to know does the restore cd run the drivers especially for the comp which no other cd can, and would it be wise to use the professional which may not have the drivers(im not sure thats why i ask).
also if i were to use the professional disc would it wipe the HD clean of all the software that was on the HD before hand resulting the restore cd could never be used again?
i hope i have made sence in all of this and i hope you know what i am trying to get at,
so if you could help me out in this way i would be very greatful.
