Just a bit of guidance really. I have downloaded XPSP2 but stopped at installation as it advises me to backup first. I have never backed up anything before! I searched the Help stuff and found the backup is not installed by default on XP Home (my system) but can be installed from the disc. I have the disc. I am in an area I have never been before, please could someone hold my hand and let me have it in easy to understand steps. Thanks in advance.
Hmmm - I have just read the following, plastered all over the wrapping of the disc -"Do not open or attempt to use this CD without the specific instruction to do so from the Mesh technical support department". The PC was new from Mesh well over a year ago so is this really necessary?
OK. On the face of the wrapping it's typical Microsoct XP colours and logo's with the words "MS Windows XP Home Edition - for distribution with Mesh computors". On the CD itself, inside the clear wrapping, it says "Mesh Computers Recovery CD-ROM". Bit further down it says "W XP Home" then "Mesh" again.
Thanks Diodorus S. I have the go ahead from Mesh to use the CD-ROM disc in order to install the backup facility and their instructions are the same as yours so thanks for that. They did advise however, not to install SP2 until all the bugs are fixed; something I was not aware of! Will there be some sort of announcement when it's OK?
OK, thanks. The download was 70Mb and now I have a little "world" icon nagging me to install downloaded updates... Never mind, I will hang on a bit. I am happy to have the backup facility though. Cheers.
