Dell Dimension 2400 & Restore WinXP Help

  Giggle n' Bits 14:45 10 Apr 2004


My Bro has bought his Dell machine with all the CD's which has XP Home. We are trying to resinstall the XP using the Dell restore Cd but are confused ok, we can boot from CD and we get the follwing 3 options which is normal; setup winxp now press Enter, Do the repiar and press R
or Quit Setup press F3

Ok problem is if you go to Setup XP as we want to reinstall XP from the restore CD it comes up with
x3 Partitions that are Partition 1-:- FAT (31MB) 24MB Free
C:Partition 2 (NTFS) 76254MB (72525MB)Free
Partition 3 is Unpartioned space 8MB

So I have 3 partitons and when I go to install XP from the Dell Restore CD I choose the C: Partiton 2 as its the biggest one and it then says you already have XP and you may cause a problem (Dual Boot)

What is the correct way to reinstall XP onto it.
