    I've just d/lded this version of xp pro, on the search (it had about 1250 users so i presume it's o.k.)

    Here's the unzipped content.



    Being new to this can any one help me. Is it possible to burn this to a cd so i can save & install when needed, or do i have to install direct from the hard drive? If this is the case how do i go about doing that?
    1) Is it possible to create a new partition on my hd.
    without formatting every thing else?

    2) How would i do this?

    3) can i just install over my current verion of xp
    home, without losing all of my other
    programmes/files?

    I know it might sound totally stupid, but like i said i am completely new to this(please go easy on me&#33

    The reason i'm asking all of this is because my current version is running like a pig, i can't re-install it because it was pre installed when i bought my pc. and i don't have an install disc (piss taking w@nkers!!&#33 so if something goes wrong i'm basically Knackered.

    any help would be very much appreciated

    Many thanks!

    Yes, you can make new partitions without formatting everything else. I believe there is a prog "partition magic" I also believe you can make a msdos boot disk and do it from the prompt.

    Try searching on google "new partition" or something like that.

    Good luck!

    burn it using nero pick iso and tick option no multisession then burn. simple
    i personally just use the copier that comes with xp etc send all files to my copier and burn it
    never had a problem. also you have got office xp not windows xp looking @ that picture.
