[dancetech database recompiled in 1999 - some articles listed April '99 are older]


Basicaly it's as it says, this video is a walkthru of the XP install in Parts - The whole thing as it happens, from initial setup steps inc' creation of the C: boot partition to Part 2 of the setup process after the XP install re-boots for the first time during setup, and the first round of basic main tweaks.

These XP SETUP Episodes are included as the final section (parts 7-13) in the 'Build an Athlon 2400 XP super-budget music machine' series, which shows a complete Music-Pc build from scratch with lots of tips and stuff for newbies - if you're thinking of building a PC for the first time, check it out.







Windows XP install & setup section of 'PC Build' article

Install Windows XP video is in parts, sorry some of it's quite large files, but really, if you want to watch a PC for music being built, this series shows the lot, and has alot of noob info & tips included plus a few wisecracks... y'know, it's informal, like somone doing the install while you watch, and they are talking you thru the whole thing and explaining bits as they appear and performing them... easiest way to learn is watching someone.... anyways, check it out.
