re-partitioned, and re-installed

Filed under: dator / computer — pl @ 01:34

I’ve now re-installed Windows XP on my old laptop.
Times three.

I’ve still got one partition left, as I figured I might want to install Ubuntu on that one.

So:- Presently, I’m installing Palm Desktop for Palm Centro, Palm Desktop for Palm Treo 600, and Palm Desktop for IBM WorkPad – each one on their separate partition.

 
Found a how-to online, eventhough it just confirmed what I had already suspected would work.

I started with a “clean” harddisk, and partitioned it into my decided four parts.
Formatted, and installed Windows XP, on the first partition.
Formatted, and installed Windows XP, on the second partition.
Formatted, and installed Windows XP, on the third partition.
Installed the extra drivers, on all three respectively.
Changed the preferences for boot order (the first one ends up “being on the last row”, and I had already named them “the other way around”).

All set! :-)
