Just wondering if there is anything I need to consider before I do a clean install of XP. The plan is to turn a 4GB USB pendrive into a bootable floppy and copy across the XP CD in full.
First question is about keys. Does the Dell recovery CD have the key embedded in the install? Would I be better off using an XP Home retail CD I have lying round and stick in the key on the sticker on the bottom?
Next question is the EISA partition. Do I need this or can I trash it? My understanding is that it is only used by the Dell diagnostics stuff so if I have no need for it then I can remove it?
