Do a high level format first. Download AUTOCLAVE burn it to disk run it this will put the hard drive in a preformatted state then reinstall XP. To avoid the blue screen of death I use Linux (PINGUY 11.04)
Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.
2 - it does not have a cd ! This is not a linux or windows thing ! U can use a usb cdrom if u realy want to...
3 - u;ll need a usb stick bootable with dos OS on it and the kit for xp
... there is plenty of info on google... But i recomand useing the
linux(faster, more stable ... prettyer :) )!
My guess is that when installing XP the option to format using NTFS was accepted. You should get a (Windows 98) DOS start floppy/CD and re-partion and format the drive before booting Linux install from CD/DVD
