clean xp install

I would like to know how I can do a clean install of XP onto a ThinkCentre M52 (8113-D5U) without all the fluff that installing to "factory state" has.. I just want to install clean then do the rest myself.

I tried one of the other howtos on another sub-forum here but no dice. It seems to refuse to boot one of my XP CDs..

Re: clean xp install

I haven't tried this yet, but you can have a go.

Install from their CD provided, uninstall all the bumph apart from the Lenovo software that allows you to create a backup disk.

then create a new backup disk and try re-install from that, hopefully it should now minus the bumph software.

I will be trying this later today so will post back with the results.
