Windows xp home edition reinstall

\015 My brothers HP Pavillion a620n had Windows XP home edition pre installed.His system crashed and he asked me for help. Well he left and did not give me his backup disk.Used my original WindowsXP home edition disk to get his system to work. When I put in my disk the computer stated that his home edition was newer then mine.still used my home edition and got the computer to work Now have his disk and was wondering if his disk will be okay to use or do I have to reinstall my disk and have it do a format on the system before I use his disk?\015

Answers :

If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
