    Hello.

    I just got a message from windows:
    "The evaluation period for this installation has expired. This system will
    shutdown in 1 hour. To restore access to this instllation of Windows, please
    upgrade this installation using a licensed distribution of this product."

    Can You please tell me step-by-step how should I make the upgrade with
    original OEM disk not to loose everything on current installation ????

    regards

  3. Do a "repair install". If you need step by step instructions, google
    "windows xp repair install" and the first site is Michael Stevens' excellent
    step by step instructions.
