Dual Booting? Reinstall Windows Without Losing Your Apps & Settings

I’ve found a nice tip for something that always happens….you have to reinstall Windows XP.  I’ve had to do this twice in the past 2 years for my Windows box.  This is especially good for those of us that dual boot…Nothing frustrates me more of having to do a complete reinstall and losing all of my apps and settings in the process (as I did on my first reinstall).  So I set out to find a way to reinstall without overwriting the important stuffs.  A buddy of mine that I work with scribbled this info down onto a paper for me…if it is posted somewhere else or from another site, I apologize and please correct me so that I might give credit where credit is due.

To keep your settings and apps, follow the instructions posted here:
