Part: seven Appendixes > The “Clean” Installation

The “Clean” Installation

As you saw in Table A.1, some users have no choice but to do a “clean” installation of Windows XP. Other users might choose to install clean, to avoid any baggage (in terms of settings, and so on) associated with their previous OS.

A clean installation wipes everything off your hard disk and installs XP to what is now a completely clean disk. This is a rather drastic installation, as it also deletes any programs and personal files that are on the disk. It also means that you'll have to reinstall all your programs after you install Windows.
