I intend to install XP Pro and update it up to current (sp2 + patches - CD is prior to SP1). Went to manufacturer site and they indicate that, after I update XP, I can then partition the remaining space (using Disk Management)?? Does anyone know if this is true? This is a Dell P3 600, 384MB Ram.
I tried to reinstall the original drive, but problem now is that the original drive wont boot (missing files, it says - they were there yesterday!). So I may have to bite the bullet soon either way.
If anyone out there has done this, or knows of it being done successfully, I would appreciate a prompt response. The laptop is nice, but most of my software is only on the Dell.
Thanks for reading my novel and (hopefully) for helping out a (semi-)geek!
