I always am.......
anyone wanna fill me in on the problems hes having without reading the 14 pages of spam?
seriously though.. im good with this stuff.. and ive been too "lazy" to reformat my comp too
He's trying to reformat but it's refusing to boot from the cd drive.
Have you tried duct tape?
i hated having to reformat my computer. im none too familiar with the process on XP, but on vista? pain in the ain, and took me seven hours
That is where W7 is sweet. Took about 30 min to load it on my new machine.
Did you go 64 bit? That's why...
64 bit Vista installed in about 20 minutes on my machine... Compared to the 2 - 4 hours of 32 bit Vista
Yeah, forgot to mention it was 64 bit. But if I remember the wifes W7 32 bit didn't take but 45 min or so.
Alright I'm gonna do it. I have a lot to do today but installing windows is kinda of a leave and let it do it's thing situation. How much room should I put on the XP partition? I'm thinking 20GB, I have a internal 320GB HD. I'm just going to have a few old, small programs that don't run in a 64 bit.
Edit: Nevermind, I decided I didn't want to deal with that right now. I'm just shrinking my drive, creating a new partition, and throwing XP on it.
