Thread: Clean install time - Am i doing this ok?




  1. #1

    Default

    After 3 weeks of trying to fix a few things thought it bet to do a clean install.
    I'm just going to boot off the CD and choose "clean install". I have saved my internet settings etc using the Wiz.
    Should I take out the internet card and disconect the cable modem (OptusHome) or just "Do it"?

    As soon as someone answers this I'm off to do it before I change my mind haha:D

    If it's a SMC 1211tx (which you should find in the device manager as to the type ya have) it should be ok to leave in but I always turn the modem off when doin' that. ;)
