Does anyone know a website for a complete guide of stuff like formatting your pc, reinstalling windows, making backups .....
Guides or good tips for this ┐
It's not that hard really.
You want to backup stuff like: My Documents,Stuff in C:\Documents and Settings\ <your user name>, etc.
I suggest u get Partion Magic.. make a backup partion if u got a big hd.
Spend atleast 1 hour or so thinkin of what u need to backup. When your finally ready, partion magic has a format feature.. format your c drive.. it'll do it in DOS on reboot, then put the xp disk in and let it boot up to install.. (you should probably get the XP Pro Bootdisks if u downloaded xp off kazaa or something: http://www.bootdisk.com/.. after u start the installation.. you choose wat u want from there.
yea, Partion Magic allows u to make partions, format, etc on a hardrive.
A partion will make 2 virtual hds on your disk.. it'll add a space that will act as a diff hd.. allowing backup of your files while u can format your windows os partion.
