Today, while trying to reinstall Windows XP (I know — it’s obsolete) on an old Dell Vostro 200, the setup failed after I pressed F8 to accept Microsoft’s EULA (End User License Agreement). I thought that the setup CD was faulty, but had the same problem with two other setup CDs.
Then I replaced the Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse with wired mouse and wired keyboard. Installation proceeded without hesitation.
If it were my site, I’d replace all wireless keyboards and mice with wired replacements.
- Strategy: I plan to install Xubuntu on a second partition on this PC, and allow dual booting to either the default (Xubuntu) or optional (Windows XP) operating system.
