My Dad is able to get a computer or a laptop from his work as there installing new Dell computers into every office, thing is there wiping the drives OP system off the Hd.

Is there a way of getting an Op system to install on the comp?
I was able to get my mate to download XP onto my last comp but he has moved away now so unfortunatly i cant ask him.
Is it easy to do or how much is buying an operating system? is there any deals you can get?

thanks

You can get Vista basic legally from ebuyer for about £50, OEM version. Pretty straightforward to install, just put the disc in and read the prompts.

Or you could use linux, quite sophisticated but free.

I have a genuine unactivated copy of XP pro that you can have for £40

Other than that you could shop around and see if you can get a better deal.

Have you looked at Linux the free Operating system ?

A lot of the linux distributions are more user friendly these days than they used to be and also the driver support has improved leaps and bounds in the past two years.

Something like Ubuntu is a great starting place

He doesnt know what the spec is yet, we need to find out when the company release the computers to all the workers.

why do they get rid of the operating system? can they not just clear it without doing it?

thanks for all the help folks
