Question about Computers & Internet
It's not so much about deleting it as it is about writing over it.If it is your C or main drive you can't delete your O.S because the O.S would be deleting itself. Do you see were this is going?
So lets say you want to replace your O.S. Read your user manual and find out what key on your keyboard you need to press to get into your bios.Turn on your computer and before you boot into your O.S hit that key. You will go into a blue or black screen with simple text. One of those lines of text will mention something about boot order or sequence.Use your manuals instructions and make your cd/DVD as your first boot device.Again, using your user manual as a guide save your changes.Usually you press F10 for this but yours may be different.Put your O.S cd in your drive at this time. Boot your computer and follow the instructions as the cd loads. That should do it.

there are two ways doing that.
1. Boot on your OS disk and chose overwrite
2. Start/run/ - type cmd, in the black boks, type format c:
and when the system say "cant do - do you want to do it when you reboot" (or in that area) - you choose yes.
But, remember, there is no way back, so dont forget to copy all documets, photos an private stuff.
If this was helpful, then dont forget to vote "FixYa" :-)
