please could some one tell me how you format my hard drive i am running xp pro

  WaiKent 14:20 15 Sep 03

do you have a windows xp disk with you. if you do then insert the disk and it should say format. or if you dont and it must have a restore disk use this to save your work to a partition and it should work.

okay well get a boot disk on a floppy and boot into dos then type fdisk, and after type format c:
then when it is formatted put in your windows xp disk and it will install OS and so on etc...

If you just want to clear your hard drive and not reinstall XP, then use a Win98se floppy and boot the PC with it in the drive. Choose Start without CD-ROM support. When you get the A:\ prompt type fomat c: or whatever drive letter your hard drive is.

you might have to go into the BIOS and change the Floppy drive to the first boot device, if it isn't already.
