New Install

  AJ25 19:29 04 Mar 2006

I have a laptop which I bought from my employer. It's an IBM Thinkpad. I'm not allowed to use the software or any licences.

I'm armed with a new copy of XP in the box and a new copy of MS Office also in the box.

The laptop has XP Pro at the moment and a stack of IBM software.

What's the procedure now? Please help

So does this mean I don't need to format the HD first?

If the hard drive or partition has a previous installation of XP you want to remove, choose to delete the partition by pressing "D". You will then be prompted to create a new partition in the empty space. This will remove all data from the deleted space.
