Performing a Clean Install or a Dual-Boot Install

Performing a Clean Install or a Dual-Boot Install

Here’s how to install a clean copy of Windows on an empty disk or partition—or a nonempty disk or partition that you want to reformat and overwrite.

These instructions describe the installation of Windows XP Pro edition, which is a superset of Home edition.

Simply ignore the steps and settings that aren’t required for your installation.
