Installing XP on my wife's notebook- Some questions. I want to install XP on my wife's notebook. I have XP Pro (full, not upgrade) and have some questions. Everyone says to do a clean install for the best results. One friend gave the following instructions; Bring up DOS, format c, when you start it back up enter the bios and change the boot device to cd, stick in the xp disc and go. Ok, would that be the way to go? I went to the Toshiba website and downloaded the latest bios and will install that first. Also downloaded XP versions of the Toshiba utilities and power mgt. programs for after the upgrade. The only XP driver they had listed was for the floppy so I grabbed it to. I will move all her files to our desktop prior to the install. As far as programs, she only really uses Office so I wouldn't mind re-installing it after a clean install. We run a wireless network at home and she accesses one at school and work as well. Also she has a dial up account on her notebook. What settings do I need to write down beforehand to ensure smooth sailing after XP is installed? I appreciate your help and expertise.
