Do you have the cd for either vista, xp or the operating system you
intend to put on the drive, and is your pc setup to read the cd drive
first? Either way insert the cd if your drive does not have a OS on it
already then the cd shouls automatically run, if it already has an OS
on it then you will have to boot from cd first,
turn on the pc hit delete on the keyboard a menu will pop up
use your arrow keys go to advanced BIOS features go down to where it says first boot device hit enter choose cdrom then go to the second and change that to hard drive
then hit f10 on the keyboard and the type y for yes to save then exit the screen
When the pc starts to boot up again it will show the cdrom booting up first hit any key to boot from the device will show up also tap a key on the keyboard and it will start running from the cd, follow the instructions on the screen when they come up and go from there,
Now if you are unable to get into the BIOS screen but you already have an OS on the pc then insert the cd in the pc and go to my computer and open the cd or let it automatically start up if you just inserted the cd. Then when it prompts you to choose to format.
