    Question Need to re-format my H/D Drive

    I need to re-format my hard drive on my other computer, and can't remember for the life of me how to re-format "C" drive. Back in the day when Win '98 was around it was easy, BUT now that I'm on Window's XP, I don't remember how to do it.

    I need to totally re-format, and re-load XP.
    Can anyone help?

    Set computer to boot form XP disk.
    Follow the prompt.
    It will let you format.

    O.K-I tried doing a fresh install from the disk thinking that would do it, but, I'll try again

    How do I get it to boot from the disk?
    I can't remember how to get back into the BIOS?

    Can you find out what type of motherboard you have? It's either going to be delete key, f2 (usually for intel and del computers), f10 or tab when first booting the computer. You'll need to set the boot devices up so that the cdrom is before hdd0 or ide0. if you can find out what kind of computer you have I'll go through the exact steps
    anyone wanna lend me a bike ?

    Delete key worked!
    Thanks guys!

    I think I got it figured out now. Had to delete all partitions, and re-create a new ones.
    It's just formating now.
