    First Name:
    Windows XP was released in October 2001.
    The SP1 upgrade for it was released in September 2002.
    The SP2 upgrade for it was released in August 2004.
    The SP3 upgrade for it was released in April 2008.
    Official support for all versions (Home Edition, Professional, Media Center Edition, etc.) ended in April 2014.
    Unofficial support for the Professional version ended in April 2019.

    I don't encourage using such an old operating system because of a number of reasons, but a lot of people all over the world still use it for whatever their reasons are.
    Because of that and because I personally have a certain amount of nostalgia for it, I've continued to test it for the past 5-1/2 years.
    The install guide that's posted at the top of the "Windows XP" section of this forum has come from a lot of clean installs and testing.
    A new guide has been tested multiple times this week and is posted.
    This guide works only with the Professional version, so if you're using Home Edition or Media Center Edition, it won't work or function properly.
    If you have sufficient computer knowledge and follow it carefully and correctly, it should be very helpful to you.

    If you have any questions or comments or advice (no sarcasm), feel free to reply.

    Frank :)
