hi, My mate has given me a cd which is a oem setup of windows xp home. Now he says that to install it i have to reboot the pc etc. However when it loads some driver things it says error then when i try to type in D:\setup.exe it says that this can not be run in dos mode. So i reboot and i get the welcome to xp splash screen what do you want to do. Now if i click install i get upgrade or complete. MY computer at this moment has xp but i just want to formatt it. However the installation i have installed already was designed for a dell but i have a packard bell. So if i was to install the complete of the oem setup despite having errors on boot. will the instalation work and it will not be corrupt.
