Hi there,

There are five methods for installing Windows XP. Review the following\015\012methods and select the method that is appropriate for your installation.\015\012
  • Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP
    Use\015\012this method for a clean installation of Windows XP. A clean\015\012installation removes all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and\015\012reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and\015\012programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.
  • \015\012
  • \011Method 2: Upgrade to Windows XP
    Use this method\015\012if you are upgrading to Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft\015\012Windows Millennium Edition, or Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.\015\012
  • \015\012
  • Method 3: Install Windows XP to a new hard disk
    Use\015\012this method to install Windows XP to a new hard disk. This is typically\015\012done when a new hard disk is installed on your computer.\015\012
  • \015\012
  • \011Method 4: Install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation)
    Use\015\012this method to install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel\015\012installation) to either run two operating systems, or to access,\015\012repair, or retrieve data from a damaged disk.\015\012
  • \015\012
  • \011Method 5: Perform a multiple boot operation
    Use\015\012this method to install Windows XP as a separate operating system on\015\012your computer. This lets you install more than one operating system on\015\012your computer and select which operating system that you want to use\015\012every time that you start your computer.\015\012
Hope this helps
