    You had a little slip. You mentioned you set the hard drive space for 2.5Gb but you just had only 2.0Gb on the screen. Thank you for all your work and videos

    Thanks a lot sir. I already have win xp but i am reinstalling win xp service package 2. When i go to install it, the screen says that I already have partition space that is used. when i go to delete it, the screen says that it is unable to delete it but i want to start off on a clean slate. How can i delete that partition space?

Now when i start my system it says do you want to start up with XP or with the back up. How do I delete that partition space with the information on it?

    Commendable job sir .In extra sections please throw some light on the application feature various CPU scheduling algorithm like round robin, first come first serve etc in various O.S.

    • Arun – Although those CPU scheduling topics are interesting, they’re outside the scope of the CompTIA A+ certification exam. If they add them to the certification, I’ll be glad to create new video!
