Is Windows XP particularly difficult to get rid of? A friend has a Gateway (exact model unknown at this point) and wants to put in a better soundcard to do various music-related things with, but WinXP doesn’t support the advanced soundcard features he wants: XP-compatible software simply isn’t available from the soundcard manufacturer yet, and won’t be for a while. Reverting to an earlier version of Windows is the only way.
- I have heard of XP system partitions and whatnot, but I don’t know on what PC’s this is done, or how to even tell by looking (I use Win98, and have no XP experience, really). -I would have assumed to take out his HD and put it in mine as a slave and format it that way; will this work? Is there an easier way? Does XP allow you to delete/format it? - DougC
