Install Windows XP in a faster way

Today, I have an old but working trick. I use it when i install windows XP.  Normally XP OS installation takes around 39 minutes to complete, but using this trick you can now save around 10 minutes.

 Here we will force system processor for running setup process more frequently than the normal setup. So setup will take less time than the normal setup.
follow these simple steps:

1. Boot through Windows XP CD.
2. After all the files are completely loaded, you get the option to select the partition. Select “c”.
3. Now Format the partition, whether it is normal or quick with NTFS or FAT
4. Once the formatting is completed, All the setup files required for installation are copied. Restart your system by pressing Enter.

Now, here begins the Simple trick to save 10-15 minutes.

5. After rebooting, you get a screen where it takes 40 minutes to complete or finalize the OS installation.
6. Now, Press SHIFT + F10 Key ->  This opens command prompt.
7. Type “Taskmgr” and press enter. This will open Task Manager.
8. Click the Process Tab, here we find a process  Setup.exe.  Right Click on Setup.exe  and Set Priority -> Select High or Above Normal. Initially it will be Normal.

Now your setup process has high priority and will be executed more frequently by processor. SO it will take less time than original. :)
