I just ordered a new mobo and cpu from newegg. I have decided to do a fresh install of xp instead of a repair as I have seen mentioned when installing a new mobo. I do have a second HD installed that has more free space available than that used on my C drive.
Can anyone tell me the procedures I need to do this, mainly how to backup and re-install my apps and files when done. Also, do I attach everything before installing windows or install the cd/dvd drives, add in cards, etc. after windows is loaded?
