Lenovo 3000 N200 Installing new hard drive and installing XP from recovery CDs

2008-09-13, 14:24 PM

Hello All,

 

My hard drive has been failing checkdisc so IBM sent me a new HD. I want to make sure I understand everything I need to do before replacing the HD. Replacing the HD seems pretty straight forward, I need to disconnect battery first and I really don't have any more questions about that step. Where I am a little unsure (thet didn't send me any concrete instructions other than the typical recovery CD instructions) is about reinstalling XP. When reinstalling Windows XP from the recovery CDs do I have to go through all 7 CDs? Also, do I have to install all of the bulkware that is included or can I install the barebones XP operating system?

 

Any links to info that would help make this easier?

 

Thanks,

Jack

you have to use all your cd, but you can choose not to install certain bulkware, it will ask you during the installation step.... it is quite easy, the installation step will take you step by step.
