Thread: Installing XP Prof

  1. #1
    Currently i have XP Home. I have just downloaded XP Prof and i was wondering how i would install XP Prof. What do i have to do. Do i click on the setup located in the XP Pro winrar file and then will it do the rest or will i have to do something else.

    Cheers

    Nah I dont think its the upgrade version. Its an iso file so will there be any need to clear the partions and stuff before loading a new operating system.

    You burn the ISO to a cd-r by going into Nero and clicking "recorder>burn image>then point to the iso(image) file"


    then insert the CD and restart the computer. go into bios and make sure the boot order includes CD/Optical drive before hard disk. Then savbe settings.
    When it says "press any key to boot from cd..." press a key.

    in the setup you will get the chance to format the current windows partition...you should do that. (remember to backup your stuff first.)
