macine could not reload XP home version RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • You can try the following steps which may help you to reload Windows XP Professional or Home on to your PC.


    1. Delete the active partition (Boot Partition). The data on this partition will be lost !

    2. Now boot the system with Windows XP Home or Professional CD (which came with your PC) and follow the steps to install. Your problem will be solved. After this, load back the backed up data.


    It often happens that the boot sector stores the unwanted files, hiding them and protecting them from being deleted. This is a tried and test process.
