#1

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.


#2

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!


#3

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:
