You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive
Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key but will differ depending on your computer and Bios.

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system.

Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded

If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd\dvd.


Hope this helps.

The impact wasted your HDD. The reason your recovery DVD's will not work is that there is no OS on the HDD to recover.

You will need to do a fresh install of your OS.

I am recently upgrade win7 hp nx9110 audio output device not installed msg getting how to resolve


Ok this is kind of common with Windows 7. Although everyone thinks its new its really not just a fairly bug free OS. The HP models running Win7 actually are using the Vista or XP driver for audio. I just ran into that issue a few months ago when upgrading a Pavillian model.

Windows will not start file is missing or corrupe system 32 drivers ntfs.sys first time this hapen its a hp pavillian destop a700n


Sometimes this error can be fixed by running a CHKDSK from the Recovery Console.

Basically, boot your XP CD and select to repair your installation with the Recovery Console, then enter the command:

chkdsk c: /R

If this doesn't solve the issue, you may be looking at a repair install, also called an in-place upgrade.

Can't reinstall windows xp


hmmm its seems your HDD is of SATA interface and XP is not able to detect the HDD interface. you can solve this problem by making SATA Disabled in BIOS setup.

Try to make disabled SATA from BIOS, and then make install.

If any problem... Ask me

Thanks
