I want to reformat my hard drive. Plain and simple. I've tried creating a startup disk and then booting into DOS but the boot disk doesn't have any format utility on it. So how do I format?

Boot from the XP CD... as it goes through setup it will ask you which partition you want to install it on, if you delete the partition and create a new one it will ask you how you want to format it, NTFS or FAT32..

Yeah, sorry to waste your time. I tried that right after I posted the message and it worked great. Now I have a clean install, since my version is an upgrade, but I did not need to install Windows 98 first!

I don't consider it a waste of time, maybe others withthe same problem will read this and get the help they need...

Glad to see you got it working.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
