The System Rebuild – Phase 1 – OS Installation

I’ve just finished phase zero of the system rebuild. I’m now entering phase one which involves installing the operating system. I’ll be installing Windows XP, and in order to get back to a usable state I will need my Windows XP CD (in MSDN wallet – check), the product key from MSDN Subscriber Downloads (printed – check), my video and network interface drives (on thumb drive – check) and the Windows XP SP2 CD (in MSDN wallet – check).

I’ll report back here when I am up and running again.

    Phase Zero should include one more thing that makes it a lot easier to get a rebuild done. Make yourself a slipstream CD of windows XP with SP2 already built in. I did it not long after SP2 came out, and saves on just little bit of extra hassle 🙂
