Your best shot would be to look for such a laptop on eBay - one with a wiped HD, or one without a HD. Also, you could just sell your OS somewhere if you're really no that comfortable.
Hi. I am looking at purchasing a new notebook. Have looked at Dell, Sony, & HP mostly. The twist is that I have all software I need,including Microsoft Windows XP Professional w/SP2. I had purchased a full version to erase my lousy Windows Millenium edition off of my desktop and do a clean install of XP. After multiple postings to this site and trying each and every idea, it still would not fully load.
Anyway, I have already purchased and am stuck with XP, McAfee Internet Security, MS Office Professional; all the software I need.
However, I am not up to a comfort level of building or customizing a laptop from scratch. Is there a way to buy a laptop without the OS and bundled software I already own?
Loaded question, I know, but any brand suggestions if not?
