|Thanks for coming back to me on this; it sounds so simple, Gretti . . . but you are unaware that I am a complete dipstick when it comes to this so please bear with me!|
I've downloaded nlite and had a look at it. Is this any better/worse/different to something like Nero or ImgBurn? I'll happily use it anyway if you recommend it so that's really just for information.
I have the driver on a USB stick, sent to me by HP, and I have an original OEM Windows XP disc. Do I just add the OS disc and the driver into the Path details of nLite and make a data DVD or is there something else I need to do to ensure that it is a 'custom windows install disc'?
Once that's done, I just put the disc into the DVD drive on the machine and start it up . . following any on-screen prompts?
It all looks far too easy, given the horse-sh*t that I've been taking from both HP and Microsoft and, frankly, I really am that naive about all this.
Sorry - I'm sure that if I had a 12 year old son, he'd be able to do it in a moment but, unfortunately, mine are all way older than that!
