Hello,

Can I access the Dos prompt before XP starts?

As soon as your PC beeps on the POST screen start tapping F8. You should then get a menu.

Is there a problem we can help you with?

Hello Jester2K,

When I originally installed XP I suffered two false starts and so I now have two part installations and one complete installation.

I wish to format my hard drive and re-install XP but I am unable to do so from XP and I cannot access DOS.

Help please!

Just pop the XP CD in, boot from the CD (Change Boot order in BIOS) and then follow prompts to format and install XP (don't need DOS for this)
