Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I have tryed to reformat my DELL Comp
Boot up F12 option 4 it runs then goes back to
option F1 or F2 it will not run reformat.
Were am i going wrong?
I have the orginal Cd re-install dics.
Dell machines store information about the recovery partition in the boot record of the computer.
If your computer was reformatted earlier or the original boot record was replaced this would happen.
What you can do right now is insert the dell recovery cd in the drive and restart the computer. it will ask you on the screen to press any key to boot from cd press any key and the reinstallation formatting options would appear on the screen.
I hope this helped!
