How do I reload windows XP prof
Posted on 2008-10-21
Problem: Many. Decided to reload windows or at least run the install disk in the 'repair" mode. It wouldnt run. This is a home built PC with new components. A legal windows disk that I used to install windows in the beginning will not reload windows and returns the phrase :"The windows on the computer is newer than the version you are trying to install." This is the SAME disk I loaded in the first place! There have been a million or so updates from MIcrosoft. Perhaps that is why it says it is a newer versiion. Then I thought I will just delete windows and then I can install it from the disk. It will not delete.
Or more correctly, I dont know how to delete it. It is not llsted in the control panel sortware removal function and aparently has no removal file. Please help me remove windows. There are two hard drives, two CD/DVD drives, and 3 1/2 floppy drive. I am on ATT DSL. Processor is 3 GHz, RAM is either 1 G or 1 1/2 G. Everything worked well for years which is to say it all has worked together in the past. Thanks for any help. Jay
