Reboot or Install Windows XP on Your Computer

Reboot or Install Windows XP on Your Computer
When your computer fails to boot, what do you do? The most common cause for your computer not to boot is because of a corrupt Operating System, in our case Windows XP. I will outline some of the steps in installing Xp. Please keep in mind that this is just an outline, a summary of sort.

Your PC must have a CD-ROM drive if not you could use another hard disk (whether it be an external hard drive, USB, drive, or other form of storage media.) These steps are for a CD-ROM rebot media. The first step obviosuly is to insert the Windows XP cd in your CD Drive. You must set the boot selector in your BIOS to boot from CD.
After it boots up in the Windows Setup Screen, you have various choices that you have to pick. The most important is the selection to format the drive or not and to leave the file system intact or not. You can choose NTFS or leave it at FAT 32. It is up to you what you would like to choose.
After your selection, reboot the machine. Usually the computer does does it automatically, but you may have to do it manually.
It takes a good 30 minutes to 1 hour to install XP. Just leave the computer there running and installing the OS system. When using your PC be careful in installing software as well as when visiting websites. Some files have viruses that destroy your OS. You should also check for spyware regularly to avoid being bothered by minor system glitches caused by a stealth program running in the background.
