Default uneventful

Well that little trek to Best Buy was uneventful. I saw an ad for xp for 69.99, but that was the upgrade. Unfortunately I cant afford the 199.99 now for the full version, so I will have to keep searching for info. Thanks for your help.

Default LINKS

Thank you for the links, I obviously don't understand how to use them. I've burnt a few onto discs, but seems no matter what I put into the computer it always goes to the windows sign on screen.

to install your windows xp home edition, restart the PC.

Before you see the win 2000 loading screen, press F11, and tell the computer to boot from the cd-rom drive. Make sure your xp cd is in the drive.

use this disc and follow my previous link. it gives you a step by step install procdure. I'll show how to use your upgrade home serial to activate it after you install windows

Default Update

Well, heres the update. After a bit I was suspicious about the computer not reading the cd-rom drive. So with the advice of a few very helpful people I went to download the xp boot floppys.
My own computer seems to have a problem with the floppy drive, maybe when I cleaned it something came loose, Ill check that tonight.

I copied the 6 discs onto floppys at work and proceeded to using them last night, everything was fine until it got to disc 5, then I got an error. ( at what point would I insert the cd-rom disc) or do I at all?

Seems like after the bomb after disk 5 the computer keeps shutting itself down when I try to turn it on.

Was going to try a different site for downloading all the disks today, although I cant really imagine that anything would have been wrong with the downloads from bootdisk.com.

Kinda back to square 1 again.
