Help to install XP Pro please

  Giggle n' Bits 23:58 26 Sep 2006

Decided to change HDD and at same time Go bigger on the HDD thing is got to the part in the XP installation and I am stuck what I am suppose to do or enter next.

The machine is not on a network its just 1 machine. I have put the ID Key in ok, the name and now got a screen saying "computer Name & Administrator Password" the Computer name is automatically put in with a default.

There are 2 boxes in the dialogue screen that ask for setting up user account called administrator so this part is asking for a "Admin password and also a confirmation of the password. As I am not going on a network should this be filled in or left blank please.

And can someone help me thorugh for another half an hour to get it done?

leave it blank and just carry on.
the account you log on with ie. the account XP starts up with will be an administrator account and you will have full access to all XP functions.

I did leave it blank as I couldn't wait much longer cos I needed to get to my bed but thanks for the confirmation. Was a bit daunting first seeing it the first time.
