|Did you order a Dell branded Windows XP disc or a Dell propietary recovery disc? How you reload Windows will depend on the CD that you ordered. Anyway, your XPS 400 should have the X300SE. Oh & BTW, do you have one or two hard disks in that system?|
>> If you ordered a Dell branded XP disc, all you do is:
→ Insert the disc & turn off the machine.
→ Upon restarting the machine, press the applicable key if prompted to boot from the disc.
→ Follow the instruction to start setup & make sure you delete all partitions on your hard disk before reloading Windows.
→ When Windows installation is complete, install your device drivers & that's it.
