Keep your data secured on an external hardware

Keep a back up of all your important files and documents on any external hardware drive like a CD or USB flash drive. In this way, you will be able to retrieve your data after you install the new operating system on your laptop.
Check out your computer’s registry
Registry is the place where all your programs and applications are stored. When you uninstall the OS from an HP Mini 210, traces of the uninstalled operating system will be left behind on the computer’s registry which hampers the proper functioning of the new operating system. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to check out the computer’s registry also and clean it with a registry cleaning wizard.
After uninstalling the Windows® XP Home Edition from your HP Mini 210, check your computer manually for any traces of files and folders. Use ‘Disk Manager’ or ‘FDisk’ to clean your computer completely. These traces are of no use in your new operating system and will only hinder the performance of your computer in future. You can also go to the Safe Mode of your computer and select ‘DEL WINDOWS’ to remove the Windows® XP from your HP Mini 210 completely.
