Install Windows® XP in Sony® VAIO JS Series
The process of installing Windows® XP on the Sony VAIO® JS series
Some PCs come preinstalled with the Windows® XP operating system. Some will have to have it installed. If you are using the Sony VAIO® JS series, you are probably in the second category. In this case, you need to install a new version of Windows® XP from scratch. Windows® XP is a reliable and popular operating system that many computer users still subscribe to even though there are new Windows® operating systems available in the market. For gamers, this operating system has fewer problems, it has all the essential tools for everyday use and with new updates and service packs, Windows® XP on the Sony VAIO® JS series will run well (although you will not be able to make the most of all the capabilities of the all-in-one-desktop). Here are the considerations and processes involved in installing Windows® XP on the Sony VAIO® JS series:
- Pre-installation checklist
- Setting up
Before you can install Windows® XP on the Sony VAIO® JS series, you need to secure some essential elements. You need the installation software or disk for Windows® XP. You also need a product key to be included in the package. Connect your Sony VAIO® JS series to the essential hardware and network connections like the keyboard and mouse. Make sure to have the Windows® XP drivers ready. This is extremely important. If you do not have the drivers ready, make sure to download and update the Sony VAIO® JS series with the latest drivers. If you have used the Sony VAIO® JS series with some essential files, remember to make a backup to ensure that you can recover the data.
Boot the PC from the disk or you follow the installation process when you click on the software pack. The setup will welcome you to the Windows® XP setup. The system will format a partition or the space that is presented on the setup in the NTFS format. The setup restarts again after the formatting. Follow the instructions and be ready with the product key.
Fix your administrator name and set the password that will be essential for the startup process. Fix the date and time. You will be then prompted to configure Windows® XP on a typical form or a custom, manual form. If you have a network or group, you would have to set its name. Windows® XP will then finish the setup and all you have to do is some essential tuning-up on your Sony VAIO® JS series. You will be prompted and congratulated for the success on the installation of Windows® XP on your Sony VAIO® JS series.
