Formatt win7 to install winxp


when you boot from xp installation cd it should start but if as you say nothing is happening there may be a problem with the cd or the drive. If you're sure it works properly you can always install your existing hard drive (the one with win 7) in another computer and format it then replace it and try again. When you format it you will wipe everything and it will be blank.

I had got my comp formated once befor with windows


I will be happy to assist you with your problem

To format your computer back please follow the steps given

  • Backup. Just to be on the safe side in case you find that you have made a mistake of forgot to save something, you should always backup your data before formatting or wiping your disk clean. You can either copy your data files on to a CD or a flash drive or another hard drive.
  • Step 2 Restart. Shut down your computer and hit the appropriate key to go into your BIOS. A message will appear as the computer starts up telling you which key to hit to enter the BIOS (sometimes called Setup). Once in the BIOS, you need to go through the different sections until you find one that says something like "boot device order". Once in this menu use the appropriate labeled keys to select CD-ROM as the first boot device. Exit the BIOS and be sure to select save by pressing key f10. If your computer does not restart, please restart it again with your Windows XP CD in the CD drive.
  • Step 3 Start the setup. After Windows starts up it will display a message that says "press any key to boot from CD", press any key. Windows will start to load files and then will take you to a screen that asks you to install Windows or repair; press the "Enter" key. Press the "F8" key to accept the licensing agreement. If a Windows installation is detected it will prompt you to repair, just press the "Esc" key. Select the existing partition and press "D" to delete the partition. You may have to press "Enter" and then "L" to confirm that you want to delete the partition. The screen will then list the open partitions to create a new partition. Hit the "C" key to create a new partition where the previous one existed. The setup will ask you to pick a size for the new partition, it will automatically list the largest possible size. Hit "Enter" to accept this size. On the next screen, Windows will ask which partition you want to install Windows on. Pick the partition you just created. The next screen will offer several options to Format the partition. Select one of the options and hit "Enter".
  • Step 4 Install or restart. After the partition is formatted, you can install Windows again or you can turn off the computer and remove the CD. Your computer is now formatted. Go back to your BIOS and change the boot up order to hard drive first.
Thanks

My computer is hacked how do I format my hard drive i have tried going to my computer C drive right clicking on format but it says xant format windows is in use tried going to dos and typing in A: but it...


Sorry to hear that. The best thing would be to get a Windows or Mac Installation disc and put it into your CD drive. Turn your Computer off. Turn it on. And when the Manufacturer's name appears, press F2, change your boot sequence to boot from the cd-rom drive first(before the hard drive) then save the changes. Simply follow the installation intructions and it will initially give you instructions on formatting the harddrive and installing a fresh operating system! Good feeling ay?

How to format windows vista os


The easy way is to do this via the vista os CD or an old xp one.

You will need to reboot your PC as it starts up look out for 'boot options' and select boot from your cd drive. If you do not get this option then please reboot again then go into boot options and select your CD rom or DVD rom to be your boot device.

For both options after making the change and your have your CD i, you will be given to option to press any key.

make sure you select to reinstall windows, at this point you will be be given the option to format your hard drive.

If you need more info or the PC is a laptop with out a CD Rom / DVD rom let me know and I will go over other ways to format your hard drive.

GETTING A "[DOIT.BAT] MD3PATCH - ERROR SETTING UP THE MD3 POWER BUTTON" MESSAGE WHEN TRYING TO FORMAT MY NEW HARD DRIVE AND REINSTALL WINDOWS


1. In first place the MD 3.0 cd must be used before you install any OS. It allows you to partition the HD by assigning a size for de C: (operating system partition). The rest of the HD is automatically assigned for the partition D: and for the space required for MD3.

2. At this point the MD is not yet installed. You are request to install your OP with you OP install cd. After you install the OP you are ready for really installing the MD3.

THE SOLUTION:

I found a BIOS update at:

http://support.dell.com/support/down...id=-1&impid=-1

After that I restart my computer from the MD3 cd. It will format your HD and you will follow the steps to reinstall.

How do i re install windows xp? please


  1. If you have a Windows XP CD place it in the CD drive.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. When it says "Boot from CD..." press Enter.
  4. Wait for the CD to load, then follow the on-screen instructions.
  5. When a list of partitions is displayed, choose the largest one and press D (NOTE: This WILL delete EVERYTHING on your hard drive).
  6. Follow the instructions to delete.
  7. Press "F" to format the clean hard drive. (May also be "L" depending on your revision of Windows XP). A quick format will be sufficient unless you have spyware, malware, and/or viruses.
  8. Select "NTFS file system and delete old files".
  9. Wait about an hour for the drive to format (times may vary depending on the size of the drive and if you chose quick format or not).
  10. When the drive finishes formatting, follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows (it displays the keyboard keys and actions on the bottom of the screen).
  11. When it finishes installing, it will start up normally with a clean hard drive.
  12. Note that my instructions are vague and could be different depending on the type of computer that you have.
  13. Additional Note: You are able to do a re-install of Windows Operating System without formatting the hard drive. If this is the case, a backup won't be necessary unless you absolutely see fit to do so.
