I got a new laptop and am selling my old one (it's only a half year old). I want to reset the computer to the state that it came, like new. That is... the OS (XP Pro) installed, with all the bundled software. However, I want it to be the case where, when the new user (buyer) starts the computer, he/she will be taken to the Windows welcome and setup, as if windows had never been run before. How do I do that? I can certainly install everything fresh. But then I don't know how to get the computer back to the place where windows xp treats the boot like the first boot of the end user.
If I install everything the way I know how, everything will be registered with the name that I give it, rather than the name of the end user.
