Installation of windows xp

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hello, my pentium 4 came with an xp installation cd. Now I want to install xp on my new computer. I am at the step that says recovery or something, and nothing happens. Does it mean I can not install xp on another computer ?

thank you

You need to provide more details. Are you using the same hard drive?
Once again...

no, completely new hard drive. I keep getting all kinds of extracting problems, and after 15 minutes, it's still at 0%... Maybe installing xp is just awfully long but i doubt it

it tried to boot from hdd that time



Put the cd in, boot from it, when it loads up hit "enter" for install, not recovery or anything

after that pops up, it will bring up a licence agreement, hit "f8"

then it will bring you to your harddrive, it will show it, hit "D" then "enter" and if it asks another thing, hit "L"

now theres no partition, hit "enter"
now it will ask what kind of formating do you want, choose, "quick ntfs format"

it will go on its way til it asks for a key and few other things

You're using an OEM Recovery disk instead of a retail XP disk by the looks of it, is that the case?

What was your P4 pc? a brand name i.e. HP, Dell etc?
