So i am going to build a completely new pc and the only thing i will be using from my current one is the old IDE port harddrive. How would i go about re-installing windows XP to my new system? Or if this is not an option how would i install Ubuntu or some other free OS on the new system?
Thanks for your help

If you have an XP disk then you could reinstall then activate via phone or burn ubuntu or preferred linux distro to a dvd and install that way
Wow. Quickest reply ive gotten so far.
What if i do not have the disk? Could i re-install it from my harddrive?
Also, what order do you install the drivers on the first boot if every component is new?
I have installed 6 Ubuntu machines all from a 4gb flash drive.
