reformating a computer


Recommended Posts

Well, if you want to completely erase all data and re-install the OS. Boot the computer with the cd. Go through like you are going to do a windows installation on the drive. At one point it will come up and ask you what partition to install on. Delete all partitions (unless you have another Hard Disk in there then just delete the one that had the OS on it to begin with), then create a new partition for the OS. The computer will create the partition then ask you to format. It will format then reinstall OS. Whole process should be about 2 hours to reinstall XP, but you don't really have to be around the computer for the install.
