Summary

Upgrading to Windows XP will enable you to use your computer more efficiently and give you access to new technologies that can make you more productive. However, careful planning can help you avoid the pitfalls that can occur during an upgrade or installation. Before you begin the installation, carefully check the hardware prerequisites and compatibility issues you will encounter with your system. Conduct a pilot installation program to test drive an installation before you put the real rollout in motion. If you are installing to a network, be certain to record all essential network information beforehand. Also, in any installation situation, weigh your options for upgrading or making a clean install.

Before you start an upgrade, back up important files and record configuration information and other settings that you may need if the upgrade or installation fails and you need to recover the system. Also, keep careful records of all backups, records, and configuration items you have checked during this preinstallation process.
