You'll need to fdisk the entire drive. XP is installed on the C: drive and you're trying to do a clean installation? Is the drive partitioned? Do you have another drive in the system?

Do you have XP installed on another partition or drive and C: is the boot drive/partition? If so, you can't format it without losing boot capablity into XP.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
