Technical Issues, Tips & Tricks
How to setup a new sys from a scratch??
The question frequently comes up about how to format and install XP from scratch. Following
are the steps I take when I get a new system. I mention the quot;brand namesquot; of software I use
not as an endorsement or recommendation, but just for the sake of example.
After unpacking and connecting all hardware, here's what I do:
1. Partition the HD according to my preference, thus deleting everything on the drive (the
number and size of partitions is entirely up to the individual user ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ I prefer
several, keeping the OS on c: and various programs, cache folders, swap file and data on other
2. Format all partitions (I prefer NT, but again thatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s up to the user)
3. Install the latest release of the OS (for now and for me thatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s XP, SP-1)
4. Install the Blaster patch before going online
5. Install Norton Anti-Virus (or whatever AV you use) before going online
6. Install SpywareGuard and Spyware Blaster before going online
7. Install Chipset Driver
8. Go online and update AV and spyware utilities
9. Install all drivers, making sure to obtain and install the latest version of the drivers from the
OEM web site and not Windows Update.
10. Set Pagefile per my own preference
11. Set System Restore and Recycle Bin preferences (I use Norton here too)
12. Get all critical Windows Updates (alternatively, some may prefer to have these already
downloaded and ready for offline update ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ again, personal preference
13. Set all visual, performance and internet options within XP to my preferences
14. Install PerfectDisk and defrag drive c:
15. Install Drive Image and create basic image of drive c:
16. Download ERUNT and create first registry backup
17. Begin installing applications to other partitions
18. Create other image(s) as appropriate
I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
quot;Oh excuse me pleasequot; was my reply.
He said, quot;Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you.quot;
We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said goodbye.
But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.
Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
quot;Move out of the way,quot; I said with a frown.
He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.
While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,
quot;While dealing with a stranger,common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse. Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.
Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.quot;
By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.
I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
quot;Wake up, little one, wake up,quot; I said.
quot;Are these the flowers you picked for me?quot;
He smiled, quot;I found 'em, out by the tree.
I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue.quot;
I said, quot;Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.quot; He said, quot;Oh, Mom, that's okay. I love you anyway.quot;
I said, quot;Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.quot;
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily
replace us in a matter of days. But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their
And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than into our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don't you think? So what is
behind the story?
Do you know what the word FAMILY means?
FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU
