Hello, my first time here. I am building another computer. when installing Windows XP full version.
the set up shows im missing a file to fully install XP. what I need to know is, how do I wipe a new hard drive,,,,formatted but empty,,,clean and start fresh.
Is there a way to add this HHD to my other computer and wipe it clean, or do I have to set a 50 lb magnet on it for 3 weeks.
new system is 3.4 Intel D.C. Hy.thrd
4 gigs of Ram
250 GB, HHD
2 floppy drives
flash card reader
some where I read or thought I read, a way to do that,slave it, and wipe it out??????
would really like to do this my self,,going to the computer shop wont let me learn anything.
I now have a NEW full version of XP, other 2 computers I built used my first XP Pro, disk and I copied it to do the 2nd,,it worked just fine,,this one says Im missing a lot of files at boot up.
Ant suggestions??????? Thanks for all your time..Alex
