How to Re-Install Windowx XP over the top?

NE1 one what is the best way to RE-install Win XP on the top of my existing Win Xp folder / directory, in order to preserve all my current programs and current settings.

Please advise and TIA.

Install using the Upgrade option.

If it is not available, then you can change “PID number” but that isn’t legal so I’ll stop here!

Boot from the cd and follow the route as for a new install. When it comes to choose the disc, it will find your old version and repair it as required - it works as I had to repair my other system the other day. All worked fine. :cool:

Hey guys,

Thanks for all your input and I will try it tonite.

Ciao.
