Chapter 3. Installing and Upgrading Wind... > Starting the Windows XP Setup Wizard

Starting the Windows XP Setup Wizard

As mentioned earlier in this chapter you can start the Windows XP Setup Wizard using several different methods. In past versions of Windows NT and Windows 2000, you could start the Setup process using floppy disks that would boot the system, gather hardware information, and then start copying files from the CD (or the network source). That option isn't available with Windows XP. If you boot from the CD, then you will get a full-screen menu that allows you to install Windows XP, browse the CD, or perform additional tasks.

Tip

Before you start to install or upgrade to Windows XP, I highly suggest that you use the Browse This CD option. This will allow you to locate and read any readme.1st or other similar files that may contain updated information that was not available on the first version of the Windows XP CD.
