How to reinstall xp without bundled software

2009-11-16, 0:04 AM

The time has come where I want to format my hard drive and reinstall xp so I can start off nice and fresh and uncluttered again.

My machine didn't come with any discs for reinstalling and it was months before I found out I was supposed to make some, so I'm not sure if they will be just the operating system and bundled software or what, also I didn't have any dvd's on hand at the time so I ended up with the boot cd plus I think 5 or so other cd's! I don't suppose that matters, will just mean a lot of changing cd's through the process.

The computer came with a lot of extra software that I never used so I don't want to reinstall it, I just want to install xp itself. Is there a way to do this, will it perhaps give me the option? I just really want to know what I'm in for before I start. Thanks in advance :)
