ok bear with me here. Ive been trying to reformat my brothers computer. He's got windows XP home edition, and I just can't figure out how to get it to work. It actually installed a second copy of XP rather than wipe it and reinstall. Any ideas?
To get Windows Install to enter the format disk routines, you need to boot the CD. Check your BIOS settings for boot order so that it will look to the CD before the hard disk, then Windows will boot with options to repair, reformat, etc. To reformat the entire disk, pick NTFS - the slow selection.
