The format command is used to completely erase the information on the hard disk so that new information can be written to it. You have erased the disk so there is no application on it. You need to start over from scratch by loading a new operating system into it off of a disk. Then reinstall all applications you want on it. Never format unless you need to start with a fresh drive!

Installation of XP MCE won't finish


You need to set the pc to boot from the install disk. Then it should detect the failed install. Either select a new location or over write or format the disk and install.
Trying to recover from a failed install is usually far more trouble than its worth. You usually end up with a unreliable install and nothing but headaches.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
