Step 10: At the middle of the installation, the Regional and Language Options will appear. Just click next and fill up the name and the company text box. You can leave the company blank if you want. Click next again.

Step 11: At this point, you are required to enter the genuine product key of windows xp. Enter the 25- character key and then press next. Make sure that the product key is correct because the system will detect if it is genuine or not.

Step 12: Now, enter your preferred computer name and then type an administrator password. You can also leave the administrator password blank and then configure it later. Click next.

Step 13: Now, on the date and time settings, choose the timezone for your country. Click next.

Step 14: You are now on the networking settings for your computer. Just click the radio button for the typical settings and click next.

Step 15: In this page, you will be asked if your computer is a member of a domain or not. If you don’t have a domain server, select NO then click next.

Step 16: Windows is completing the installation. This will also take a while. Just wait until your computer restarts.

Step 17: “Press any key to boot from CD” will pop up again but don’t press any button. Just let it continue. It will automatically proceed with the installation.

Step 18: Display settings will pop up, click ok then if the monitor settings will appear, click ok again.

Step 19: Welcome to Microsoft Windows will now appear, click next.

Step 20: Help protect your PC will now appear, click the “Help protect my PC by turning on Automatic Updates now” and click next.

Step 21: Windows will now check your connectivity, just skip this first. LAN drivers are not yet installed.

Step 22: Ready to register with Microsoft? Window will appear, select “no, not at this time” because you don’t have an internet connection yet. Click next.

Step 23: In this page, enter your name and then add a 2nd to 5th user if you want. Click next.

Step 24: Now, you’re done! Just wait until the welcome screen shows.

At this point, you have successfully installed windows xp on your computer. Before anything else, make sure to install all needed drivers for your system. Refer to your motherboard user manual for your driver installation.

thanx sir in advance


You need to reformat your PC and install it again after that do not update your windows

if you update again "you may be a victim of software counterfting" will appear again

disable automatic update your windows xp


what im going to do is to goto regedit then i find the windows geniune advantage then delete it after that i erase the WGA icon in system32 after i restart it will not appear again... is that ok?

sorry sa wrong grammar ma'am...


pirated ba ginamit mo?

di ko alam kc binigay lang to sakin

kung hindi yan pirated, baka nagamit na yung original na cd key n nabigay sayo kaya nagkaganyan.

ah ksi sabi nya na copy lang to..isa lang ba ang dapat maging original pag copy lang ang isa?

depende yan. kng pang maramihan yng license mo, ok lng na ienter mo ulit yng cdkey pero kng pang isahan lang. isang computer lng talaga makakagamit nung original. ask mo cya kng original yung cd na yun.. ask mo rn yung cd key.

di rin nya alam...tsk pro thanks anyway...^_^

Sir pano po mag crack ng isang trial na program? ksi yung converter ko trial lang pagdating ng 15 days e.uuninstall ko nanaman..ano po ba gagawin ko?mg crack sana ako...


Marami crack software iGoogle mu na lng makakahanap ka then download mu

sir gusto ko po sana ako mag cra2ck..ok lang po ba magpaturo?

ang crack mostly dinadownload yan depende sa program na gamit mo kung may crack na available... anu bang program yan?

converter po...gusto ko po sana kung may idownload ako na trials ako nalang ang mag cra2ck..

tanong lang po...
kung magre2format po ba, lhat ng nasa HDD mawawala po ba?as in ung magiging empty?o liliit ng liliit yan sa HDD??

Hi anton,

mawawala po yung laman ng disk na irereformat niyo...pero if ever nakapartition ka, yung drive na irereformat mo lng ang mabubura...

sabi kc ng nagreformat sakin liliit lang daw yan sa HDD. parang tuldok nlang, hanggang mapuno d na magagamit HDD ko..

Hmm, hindi ko masyado maintindihan... Liliit yung space kapag nireformat mo?

opo..example ung HDD mo full na then pag ireformat mo hndi daw yan mawawala,liliit lang daw yan.

Pag once na nireformat mo ang HDD mo, for sure mawawala ang laman ng drive.

ahh thanks a lot po sir thumbs up!!hehe
