Evesham & XP CDs?

  expertec 13:50 31 Jan 2004

Do Evesham PCs ship with a full copy of Windows XP on CD-ROM?

When I bought my Evesham in December 2003, it came with a system recovery disk for XP Home (my operating system).

I believe from what I have read that this is normal practice with the big suppliers, but maybe someone here knows different.

Desktop - Nov 2002 - Full XP disc, although it says "Product Recovery CD-ROM" on the CD.

Laptop - Dec 2003 - Full XP disc, although it says "Product Recovery CD-ROM" on the CD.

So with this disc I can do a proper clean install of Windows if I ever need to?

Please ask before purchasing.

OK, thanks very much for your help.

What is Windows fully installed already or will I have the option to partition the hard drive during setup?

Already Installed, all software is all ready to use.

1 Partition...

Mine was preactivated!

You have to install some yourself. No XP discs included, only Evesham recovery Discs. I understand this can be a problem if the HD fails.

Same as Powerless with my Evesham PC. The recovery disk supplied has the full Windows XP Home edition on it.

I found the disk would not do a " complete clean install" it would install but left a lot of info on thier...Once i upgraded my pc then it didnt work anyway..
