Have Lenovo X200 that was preinstalled with Vista
It shipped with cds to take it back to XP if I did not like Vista....no like Vista so I installed XP .
Now X200 is full and slow boot and many problems ..need to install Xp fresh and clear HD also.
When trying to boot from 2 Cd's supplied by lenovo, laptop goes blue screen after selecting setup from menu.
how can I install XP fresh with lots of free space in HD
Do i need to format or ?
Have another XP Pro install CD with serial number if needed. Will not boot either presently.
Using external Sony DRX530UL DVD-+RW/-+R USB to connect laptop.
Please explain steps to do and how to get back a good system.

Hello, scoway.
What errors are mentioned in the blue screen?

If you want to install XP to a clean hard drive, I suggest wiping the drive first and then running Setup. If the Recovery/Install disks are supplied by machine manufacturer, the necessary drivers are (optimally) included.
