    Hhmmmm... OK her some tips first let me know if what of XP OS is already in your machine.. 2nd if you are not sure first back-up your machine and save somewhere in case off any trouble. Now if you are using an older version of XP and you upgrade your file will be remain, but if you need to install on clean boot. You must to FDISK your machine and install a new one.

    Remember guys ones you delete your partition and if yo are not sure its because a lot of trouble. Make sure you know what are you doing

    If you start installing XP it will automatically wipe out the old version unless you make a new partition and you install it there!
