Formatting hard drive When booting from a Windows installation CD select the option to install Windows then you (can either delete the existing partition/s then create a new partition then you) can format the hard disk. After formatting the hard disk you can abort the Windows installation if you do not want proceed to install Windows. You should be able to use the Windows 7 installation CD to delete the existing partition, create a new partition and format the new partition and then install Windows 7.
This is generally how your format the hard diskand install Windows. First you need a Windows XP or Windows Vista installation CD and the productinstallation code, which is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of yourlaptop. Boot up with the Windows installation CD start and follow the instructions toinstall Windows. Next Delete the existing Windows partition. Next Create a new partition. Next format this new partition - Format the partition in NTFS not a quickformat. This will prepare the Windows for a clean install if you want to proceed otherwise quit or turn off the computer after format has been completed.
Formating the disk deletes EVERYTHING on that disk partition and sets it up for the installation of an operating system (XP, VISTA, LINUX etc).
If that is what you want, you will need your operating system disk. It will have the option to delete the current partition and install the "new" system. When you delete the partition, again, all the information on that partition is deleted.
Follow the instructions on your recovery disk and it will lead you thru these steps.
If you need more, details, let me know where your having a problem. There are more detail instructions at:
check your boot setting first in the cmos/bios of your laptop, look for the boot order from there choose your cd/dvd rom as your first boot device then the hard drive 2nd, you will need to this because in order for you to install xp, when you are done save the setting that you have made then restart the machine, insert your windows installation disc, it will prompt you to press any key to boot from the cd rom, from it will check you system config, then just follow the instruction given to you by the installation process read it carefully then it will be easy as 123, windows will guide you thru the installation process and will ask you for the lincense key, just make sure that you use a genuine copy of window if not you wont be able to register your o.s and you wont get the updates from windows

and copy in to one floppy
connect floppy in to the computer
during boot from the cd

Hi there. Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition). Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB. When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.
Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.
Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
