I am back at this again.
Thought I was done, but not quite yet:)
Swaying heavily towards the donating deal, but if I could wipe this clean first, I may try and sell it still.
The case does have an XP sticker with key # and everything on it.
I had the idea that I may be able to burn a restore or backup disc for the OS, format the "C" drive, then restore it with a clean install for a better selling point.
Seems like my last couple of laptops I did something like that with since manufacturer did not include any recovery software and suggested it.
Can this same type of disc be created in an older XP machine?
I looked through the system tools and restore functions without seeing much of anything besides how to create a restore point. I am really not interested in any of the data, drivers, added programs or apps being saved, just the OS for re-install after formatting the HDD.
I did a few searches without any real answers...
Anyone know how to create a XP back up or restore disc?
Hopefully I am explaining this weel enough...
THANKS in advance:)
