I am expecting the delivery of a new PC shortly and it will have Win XP (home)loaded, I note from previous threads and my order receipt that it will only have a recovery CD and not the full programme loaded at the factory. I have a brand new Win XP(Home) programme that I was going to use to upgrade my present PC but aborted that idea in favour of this new unit, can the XP programme that I have be safely loaded into this new PC or will the identity codes clash. Yes its a Mesh Matrix 2600 R95!!
Ghosting is OK in theory but my experience of a MESH machine is that the CD-Writer fitted did not work reliably with burning CDs at all using the Nero software supplied by MESH.
Sure MESH technical advised (Why do they put desktops at Number 6 on the message one hears?)changing a driver setting from DMA to PIO which worked but I still have the Ghost bomb-out problem to solve (any one of the CDs fails to eject ready for the next which necessitates the whole sequence to be aborted). This issue is being addressed, hopefully, in another thread here.
Also check that it is just a recovery disk as my brother bought a mesh last year and his "recovery cd" was a full xp cd just branded as a mesh recovery disk, this has something to do with the oem licencing as they are not allowed to call it a windows cd or something like that.
