? Regular backup (actually, copies of files on CDs and CD-RWs)
? Keeping the OEM or origimal XP SP1 disk and licences together with Program disks in a safe place.
? Burn the downloaded SP2 patch to a CD, rather than upgrade on-line.
? No repair installs. Always a full reformat and reinstallation. Upgrade the OS via the saved SP2 patch.
? You may also make a 'slipstreaming' disc, but I have not made one yet.
to begin with, than how do you get a disk made should your pc crash?????? I have an xp Home OEm and I have upgraded to xp 2 on 3 of my machines. question is if i have a failure of some sort. what the heck do i do?
OEM CD is XP serv 1.
pc's upgraded to XP serv 2 online.
if problems occur then how do i do a repair install and further if needed a total re install..
