Steps to Do Before You Install Windows

There is a new version of Microsoft Windows coming every few years. You might want to purchase the newest one, but you do not have to. It is totally up to you. Before you install new Windows, make sure you do a few things though like:

• Back up all your files to another drive. It is important that you do a clean install rather than an upgrade. I am recommending a backup in case something goes wrong with your new installation.

• Make sure that your hardware is correctly installed. This usually applies to new computers.

• Remember to check your BIOS and instruct it to boot from CD. This way the Windows installer is going to run automatically when you insert a CD. Otherwise, it is going to try to access your operating system from your HDD.

• You will be asked to put a CD in your CD ROM drive, so make sure that this one is prepared too.

• Make sure that you have the right copy of Microsoft Windows. If you have a pirated copy, you might encounter some problems, especially from the legal system sooner or later.

Like I said, if you are happy with your current Windows, you don’t have to buy anything, as the cost is quite high, especially if you have a few computers in your household.
