Secondly We need to make it so that our computer is loaded not as always from a hard disk, and so that it be loaded from the usual DVD drive from the drive. After all, when we insert a disk with the operating system into the drive, then it is from there that the information will be read and copied the files necessary to install Windows XP. To download the download from a regular disk, you need to go to Bios.

And put the load with CDROM on the first place. To do this, reboot your computer and immediately press the key several times Delete. Until we fall into the BIOS. Depending on the motherboard it can be a key F2.

Step-by-step reinstalling Windows XP

The operating system is the basis of the software of a computer device, so to speak "the brain" and represents a set of programs, with which resource management, external computer equipment takes place, and its interconnection with the user.

The operating system is installed on a new "clean" computer or laptop after purchase, since without it the computer remains unsuitable for operation, because in addition to the BIOS, there is nothing from the program part. However, it is often necessary to perform Windows reinstallation, i.e. Installation instead of already existing OS.

Content

The famous quote from the popular film is eloquently answering the question when there is a need for such a cardinal step as reinstalling Windows XP.

The most common reasons are the following:

- systematic appearance of errors, "hanging", "braking", frequent spontaneous reboots arising due to systemic garbage, incorrect removal of programs, the involvers of the computer, which ultimately can lead to a serious failure in its work and the loss of valuable information;

- the impossibility of loading at all, i.e. The appearance of the blue "death screen";

- To improve the work of a computer with weak system resources (although the configuration and optimization of Windows) can help.

In any case, it is necessary to decide on such cardinal actions as reinstallation, it is necessary only after a careful analysis of the device, repeated attempts to "do with low blood", i.e. Performing actions to improve its condition: Guidance of the order in the registry, cleaning the disc from trash files, defragmentation, "Sanations" from viruses, etc. If nothing helps, it means that the process went too far and requires an extreme measure - reinstalling the system.

One of the main advantages of Windows XP is low-demanding system resources of a computer device, while it has some "versatility" against the old and new software: the same good "feels" both on weak models of computers and modern devices. Also, if possible, consider installing Windows 10, Windows 8 or seven.

  • To reinstall this operating system, the following parameters and equipment are needed:
  • The processor is 233 MHz (minimum).
  • RAM - 64 MB.
  • Super VGA video adapter with a resolution of 800x600.
  • Hard disk space from 15 GB.
  • CD-RUM or DVD-RUM.
  • Keyboard.

Mouse and other peripherals.

In addition, there should be an installation disk, better licensed or its high-quality image on a CD / DVD or flash drive, a product key and a set of desired drivers.

In order to avoid seeping errors and incorrectness from the old operating system, it is best to reinstall with disk formatting, so to speak, "full", only then can you guarantee a valid "update" of a computer on which there will be nothing superfluous.

It should be remembered that reinstalling the operating system means the full loss of data on the disk C, and when formatting the hard drive, information on all logical disks. Therefore, before starting installing Windows XP, carefully analyze and save the desired files to flash memory, a portable disk or other computer, as well as take care of the drivers: It's a shame when after installing a new system, it will not "see" old external devices. After these manipulations, you can proceed to the immediate reinstall. Further instruction is designed to install the disk if you want to use a USB flash drive, use this manual.

After turning on the computer, press the "DEL", "ESC" or "F2" key in order to enter the BIOS menu and make changes to the appropriate items.

BIOS is a hardware-software part of the computer responsible for settings of the component system unit.

The so-called "hotkeys" to enter the BIOS menu in different manufacturers may differ slightly, for example, for ASUS, this is "ESC" or F8, for Sony - F11, for Acer - F12, and for Samsung - "ESC" or F10. So it is not necessary to despair if you have nothing to do with the first time, a few more attempts should be done using different combinations. In the BIOS menu, go to the tab Advanced And, with the help of arrows, we find item FIRST. Boot Device. in which we change the order of loading by setting the priority with CD / DVD. After that, we save the changes made by pressing the F10 key, which means Save. And. EXIT Setup.

(Save and exit settings), confirm the action by pressing "YES" and leave the BIOS. If difficulties have arisen, read the hotkeys table to enter the BIOS.

Reinstallation from flash memory is distinguished only by the fact that at the first occasion in the BIOS, you must select the download from the USB flash drive, on which the image of the installation disk is located. Insert the installation disk into the drive and overload the computer. An inscription will appear on the screen. Press Any. Key to. boot from. CD Or. DVD

(Click any key to confirm the boot with CD or DVD). The installation process will continue, and a proposal will appear on the screen from the automatic installer of Windows XP Professional Select one of the items, including the "Installation". Press Enter and accept the license agreement with the F8 key. The screen will make a picture with a proposal for creating sections. Choose FROM, As a rule, it is this letter indicate a system disk, and determine its volume. For Windows XP, it should be from 15 GB. Enter the numbers to the appropriate field. If you wish, you can delete the key section

To do this, you select the "Format partition in the NTFS system" using the up-down arrows. During formatting, all data from the disk C will be erased, a new markup of the data storage area will occur and an updated file structure will be formed. That is why it was necessary to pre-preserve information on external media.

This process will go automatically, without your participation and includes unpacking system components and copy the relevant files. On the screen will be sequentially changing messages, then the program will be announced to the emergency reboot, during which you need to go to the BIOS again and reconfigure the priority of devices by changing it on the HDD.

  • Installation will continue. Now it is necessary to successively follow these steps:
  • set languages ​​and regional standards;
  • designate a name;
  • make a product key (25 characters);
  • Enter the name of the computer and password (optional);
  • set the date and time;
  • set up a working group;
  • perform network support (here we do not change anything);
  • After the welcoming screen appears, click "Next";
  • The following settings can also be skipped (for quick installation);
  • Enter the account name (username);

Go to the penultimate picture in the installation and click on the "Finish" key.

Next, a message appears to automatically configure the resolution of the screen, with which you need to agree by clicking "OK", after which the picture of the desktop will be lit. Installation is completed, you can now download device drivers, make custom settings and transfer back to the disk stored on external media information.

Select a priority disk

Install the Windows XP operating system is not more difficult than any other version of the OS. Following simple instructions, even an inexperienced user will cope with the task. The main thing is to choose a suitable assembly.

Many users believe that the installation of operating systems on a computer is the prerogative of specialists. But is it really? Learning to install and reinstall Windows XP yourself.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

INTRODUCTION

It is no secret that human communication with the computer is carried out using the operating system installed on your PC. This is the primary and fundamental software component, without which it is impossible to submit a modern computer. Unfortunately, like any other program, the operating system is imperfect, and over time, almost any user faces violation of its normal functionality. This can be expressed in a significant increase in the time of downloading the computer and open applications, hangs when working, the occurrence of various errors when performing certain actions or even in full failure of the system. Such consequences can lead to both the incorrect actions of the user itself and the impact of various malware existing with an excess in the global Internet.

According to statistics, even if you neatly exploited your OS and securely defended it from viral infection, after 3-4 years 80% of users have significant reasons for reinstalling the system. And if you still decided to do it yourself, not referring to all sorts of paid technical services, this article is for you. In it, we will consider not just the complete installation of the WindowsXP3 operating system, but we will try to disassemble all the main nuances that occur during the installation process. This approach will allow not only more flexibly set up a new OS already at the stage of reinstallation, but also to avoid possible losses of important data.

Naturally, before installation, you need to have an installation disk with the system. Moreover, this disc should be bootable, i.e. the computer must be able to load from it. As a rule, all original discs with the system or their images are bootable by default. In general, the installation of WindowsXP can be launched in two ways - directly from the already installed system or through the download from the disk. The second method is preferable, well, if you have an old system not loading or you install on a new computer, then the only possible one.

In order for the computer to start booting from the mounting disk, it may be necessary to make simple settings in the BIOS. The fact is that your optical drive should be the first in the list of boot devices, which is not always configured so. To check this, you need to insert a Windows CD into the drive and reboot the computer. If during the download process you will see an inscription: "Press any key to download", then everything is in order and can be started to install. Otherwise, you need to go to the BIOS setting.

Configuring a computer to boot from a CD

When you turn on the computer, as a rule, a short message appears, indicating that key with which you can go to the BIOS settings menu. Be careful because this inscription disappears from the screen quickly, especially in laptops. If it was not possible to see it from the first time, immediately reboot the computer using the RESET button and try again. At the time of starting the download, a large graphic image can appear on the screen, which covers the service inscriptions on the screen. To remove it, press the ESC key.

  • The list of the most common keys:
  • Desktop computers - DEL (almost always), F1

Laptops - F1, F2, F3, Del, Ctrl + Alt + Esc. In the case of laptops, the key combination can be very diverse, depending on its model. You can find this information either via the Internet, or by calling technical support.

Finding out the key that is responsible for calling the BIOS settings menu, restart the computer again and at the very beginning of the download, click on it several times (enough and one time, but to accurately catch the right moment, the repeated press does not prevent). If everything is done correctly, the settings window should open.

As a rule, two types of bios are most often found:

As a rule, two types of bios are most often found:

Phoenix awardbios. If your window looks like this, then you need to choose a section Advanced Bios Features. , and in it item First Boot Device. Assign a CDROM value. Then press the key

Priority. in point FIRST. 1st Device. Set the name of your optical drive. Then press the key

F10 and in the dialog box that appears, select YES.

Mobile devices (laptops), BIOS programs can vary very much, and lead to this article all possible options are not possible. In any case, you should find the item in the settings window, the name of which is associated with the download (BOOT) and set the optical drive (CDROM) in it.

Start of installation

After switching on / restarting the computer, if any Windows operating system is already installed on your computer, then after some time on the screen you will see the inscription "Press Any Key to Boot From CD" (press any key to download CD) What do you need to do?

Be careful, as you will have only 5 seconds to enter the installation of the system. If the current operating system is loaded, it means that the ability to start the installation was missed and reload the computer to the next attempt.

The Windows XP basic software installation screen will then appear, which requires your intervention only if you plan to install the system for an array of hard drives (RAID) or high-grade SCSI disk. It is here that you should press the key

, To install additional drivers of these devices, managing messages in the bottom of the screen. In most cases, such an intervention is not required and you should simply wait for the screen of greetings.

  • On the welcome screen you will be asked: Install Windows XP. You should choose by pressing the Enter key
  • In the case of a new installation or restoration of the previous copy of Windows using the graphical interface. .
  • Windows recovery with the help of the recovery console. You should select experienced users to restore the system using DOS commands running from the command line. Allows you to eliminate minor system errors without passing the full installation procedure. Most often used to restore the boot sector of the file system and the main boot record (MBR); point copying, renaming or removing folders and operating system files; creating and formatting sections on disks. Recovery Console is called by the R key .

Output. In case of refusal of installation, press the F3 key .

Select the first item "Start to install Windows XP" (even if you are going to reinstall the system) by pressing the input key, after which a window appears with a license agreement that needs to be taken to continue the installation by pressing F8

Next, the installer starts searching for previous copies of Windows installed on your computer.

  • If such is found, you will see the screen with the list of these systems and the menu in which it will be proposed: Recover a copy of Windows by pressing the R key
  • . Selecting this item, you will have to go through the full system installation procedure, during which all system files of the old copy are replaced with a new CD. All your data, settings and installed programs will be saved. Recovery helps in case of damage, delete or replacing infected files, Windows system files. .

Install a new copy of Windows by pressing the ESC key

You will not see the window with the list of installed systems, if you install the system to a new computer / hard disk, as well as if the previous copy of Windows has a different edition or service pack.

The next step in the installation is the distribution of disk space under the operating system. This is a very important point and take it carefully, and all the actions perform very carefully.

Hard disk distribution rules

  • In this place I would like to make a slight digression and bring some useful recommendations on the partition of the hard disk:
  • Do not assign all the hard disk space for one single section. This is considered a bad tone and may in the future deliver a lot of trouble in the future.
  • Modern hard drives have sufficiently large containers for storing data and therefore it is advisable to split them into several thematic sections.
  • It is recommended for installing the operating system and the necessary software to divert a separate section and not to score it with your personal data.
  • Select the size of the system partition should be with a margin, given that for Windows correct operation, 15% of this section should remain free.

Do not create too many sections. This will complicate navigation and reduce the efficiency of the distribution of files and folders of large size.

Definition of system partition

Now, let's go back to the installation. From this point on, the installation of the installation can go in two ways: Option 1: You have a new computer and hard drive has never been distributed

. In this case, the following plan will appear before you:

The size of an unbelievable area is the volume of your hard disk and of course the coincidence with the specified in the screenshot should not. To continue the installation, you must create a swadder on the disk (system partition), which will be installed in the future, and specify its size. As a rule, for Windows XP and related software, it is enough 40 to 60 GB, but not less than 20 GB. By pressing the C key in the window that appears, enter the desired size of the generated section.

Size must be specified in megabytes. Calculate it based on the fact that 1 GB = 1024 MB. Thus, if you want to stay under the system section 60 GB, in the size field, you must enter the number 61440.

By pressing the input key you will return to the hard disk partition window, where the created section will be isolated by a separate line with an indication of the given letter from the Latin alphabet (as a rule "C"), the file system - in our case, "new (unformatted)" and its size. Below will be the string with the remaining non-distributed area, which you can smash the number of sections in the same way. True, here it is not necessary to do this, since after installation it can be done by Windows.

By creating a system partition, select it using the arrow on the keyboard and press the Enter key, after which you will see the last dialog box in which you will be asked to format it.

Boldly choose a quick format version by pressing the input, since in the second case, the physical surface of the disk occurs, which takes a fairly long time, especially if the section has a large size.

After selecting the file system, Windows installation will start directly. Option 2 - If the system has been installed on your computer.

Then your hard disk has already been distributed to the logical areas, and you will see the window with the listing of all the sections found. Attention! All further manipulations with the found partitions can lead to the loss of your data, so be very accurate in your actions. If the current partitioning of the hard disk does not suit you, you can delete the existing partitions in whole or in part by pressing the D key

. The selection of the desired partition is carried out using the up and down arrow keys. After deleting the partition, the area that it occupied becomes unbalanced, and all the data on this logical disk are removed. When removing several partitions, they turn into a single unintended area that in the future you can distribute how you wish. The principle of the distribution of the unintended portion of the hard disk is described above.

After all redistribution or if the existing hard disk structure suits you, you can only select the desired section in which you plan to install the system and press the Enter key.

If you have already selected the previously existing data section with existing data that has previously existed earlier, you will be asked to choose a few options, how to do further. Caution, the formatting of the partition in any file system will lead to the loss of data that were in it! The FAT system is obsolete and formatting makes sense to produce only in NTFS (rapid preferable). By choosing, press the input to format and copy system files to start formatting and copying system files. If for some reason you still want to save the information located in the section you selected, then select the "Leave the current file system without change" item. In this case, all the data on it will not be touched. Moreover, if the previous copy of Windows has been installed in this section (most likely option), then in this case the installer will be issued a warning that the Windows folder already exists, offering either to lose the existing copy by clicking Or select a new folder for installation. Here are unambiguously press

Since the old folder with the system will be renamed automatically and saved.

It should be noted that after such an installation, it is categorically recommended to manually clean your system partition, namely the removal of a large number of files duplicating each other. The fact is that the Windows installer will not only save the old copy of the system, but also all the files of the accounts existing in it. From this all good for you it is possible to use the "My Documents" folder, "Favorites" and "Desk". Everything else will be useless trash engaged in gigabytes of a hard disk space. That is why it is preferable to take care of saving your data in advance, and the new system is installed in a clean partition, pre-formatted.

On this branching of the installer ends, and the further installation passes linearly. After selecting the hard disk partition to install the new operating system, copying the main system files of Windows.

Upon completion of the copy, there will be a reboot of the computer, where you do not need to do anything, but only wait for the advent of the installer screen already with a graphic shell.

Determining the initial pavements of Windows

In this window, you can change regional settings and input language. By default, Russia and Russian language is already installed as a location. So, no need to change anything to change, click "Next."

In the next window, you must enter the username (your name) and the organization (optional). Click "Next".

To continue the installation in the key input window, you must enter the serial number of the WindowsClizenzion sticker.

Next, you must enter the name of your computer, under which it will be visible on the network, using only Latin letters. Entering the administrator password can be postponed for later.

In the Time and Date Settings window, it is most likely to change anything either, since the correct data will be entered automatically, and you will only be left to click on the "Next" button.

Beginner benefits: Installing Windows XP in detail

The following two windows you will see only if the driver for your network card is contained in the WindowsXP distribution.

Installing Windows XP Network Settings

The inclusion of automatic update is desirable, but at this stage it is optional, since you can perform a more flexible setting of this parameter after installation from the control panel.

Select Windows XP Security Settings

Internet connection check

In the process of reinstalling Windows XP, the partition of the hard disk, where the previous version of the Windows operating system was previously stood, this is a C disc, although someone can be called differently, for example D, E, G, etc. And it will be formatted (all data will be erased). Based on the above, it is better to take care of the safety of important data in advance and transfer them to another computer or write to a disk or flash drive. If, in your opinion, there is nothing important for you, you can start installing Windows.

To install, we need a boot disk with Windows XP.

It is also nice to have a driver with drivers, which was complete with a computer. Often, users have problems playing video and sound, as well as connecting to the Internet, as in the latest Windows XP operating system, unlike Windows Vista or Windows 7, there is no built-in universal drivers package. In general, it will take care of the drivers in advance if there is no disc, then download, because if you have no driver for a network card, then you will not be able to connect to the Internet and download everything you need to work for correct operation of the operating system.

First of all, you must configure the download from the BIOS CD. You can log in to the BIOS by pressing the F2 or Delete keys, for those who do it for the first time, I advise you to miss and already come there, you must constantly press the Delete key until you find yourself in the BIOS menu. It is necessary to do this immediately after turning on the computer.

The following depicts the upload priority setting, the default is hard disk, so we change the value of First Boot Device on the CD-ROM. Second Boot on the contrary change with Hard Disk on CD-ROM. On different computers, the BIOS interface can look differently, the menu looks like this:

Then you need to save the changes made and exit BIOS using the Save & Exit Setup menu item. BIOS navigation is carried out by the Enter keys (log in to the menu item) and ESC (exit the menu item), as well as keys forward / back and left \ right.

P.S: After installing the Windows XP operating system, it is recommended to return the changes made by us, for which we go to the BIOS and return everything back as it was before our intervention or select Load Optimized Defaults, then Save & Exit Setup item on it.

With the settings BIOS I hope, figured out, now the installation itself is directly:

After booting from the disk, the Windows Installation program will start. This greeting screen appears:

Click ENTER and go to the selection of the hard disk partition where the new operating system will be installed, you can select either that disk where Windows XP has had before (recommended), or another disk partition, provided that there are no files that You need, since at the next stage we format the disk section that now choose.

Select the C disc and press ENTER:

Select to format the partition in the NTFS system and press ENTER, then we see the formatting process:

After the format process is completed, the system will start copying files from the installation disk to the hard disk of the computer:

Important:

After the download scale reaches 100%, the computer will be rebooted as soon as the reboot starts. Be sure to get a CD from the drive. If this is not done, then installing Windows XP will begin again. Be careful at this step!

After rebooting the computer, we will see the Windows XP installation screen,

In the process, you will be asked to set up tongue and regional standards, click Next.

Then it will be prompted to enter the name of the computer owner (here you want what you want, for example, Vanya), well, and then the computer name (by default there will be a set of letters and numbers, it is better to change it, for example, on mycomputer or any other).

Much more pleasant when the computer will wear the name you give him, and not, for example, this: 782 "; 67. Password can be entered, but you can skip, as it can be done later in the already installed operating system.

In the settings of the date and time click Next.

In the network settings, select the usual parameters and click Next.

Then, when, in fact, the installation itself will be completed, the Windows initial installation step will begin, it will be prompted to turn on the automatic update, select item: to postpone this action. Next, it will be proposed to select a way to connect to the Internet, you can safely skip this step and click further, since we will configure the connection already in the Windows XP itself.

Then we see the screen where it will be prompted to activate Windows, choose: No, since we have not yet configured the Internet connection. Connection to the Internet will be configured later. After installing Windows, I will remind you that it is necessary to install all the necessary drivers (which must already be ready: it can be a disc that was complete with a computer, or you recorded everything you need to write everything on a CD or flash drive) and after This is already activating your copy of Windows XP.

Well, in conclusion, it will be prompted to enter user names that will work on this computer. Just enter the name of the main account (any at your discretion), the remaining fields are not necessary. Then click Next. ... This installation of Windows XP can be finished.

In order to change the priority of the computer loading, we need to correctly configure the BIOS (a small program located on a constant storage device). There is nothing terrible here: you just need to change one function. Thanks to this, the main download will be made from the installation disk.
