I am using Windows XP I tried to reinstall the operating systems and now have it twice under the one partition, how do i delete one of the windows installation to reformat the hard drive?


Its going to be a case of re-installing XP again.

As you go through the process, XP asks you which partition you would like to install onto.

If there's already and installation on the partition, you have to delete that partition.

As you continue through the process, XP will has you if you what kind of file system do you want Fat32 or NFTS. Choose NFTS and go for the full format. That should clear the drive of previous installatiions

Installing windows xp --------- Plz tell me that what should be the partition of 40gb HDD if u want to install xp.What should be the file system NTFS OR FAT32?is it true that ntfs is bad for HDD


Choose “NTFS” as it is faster and more secure. It is not bad for your HDD. If you don't have any other Hdd you might want to upgrade. They don't make 40gb hdd any more, XP will take about half that when it installed. It really limits what you will be doing with your computer in the near future.

I hope this helps.. Good luck

NTLDR MSSING, how can i solve this?


NTLDR is short for NT loader – a program loaded from the hard drive boot sector that displays the Microsoft Windows NT startup menu and helps Microsoft Windows NT load. So when it goes missing for some reason, your windows cannot load.
Cause:
1. Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
2. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
3. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
4. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
5. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
6. New hard disk drive being added.
7. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
8. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
9. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.
if there is attached drive ,remove the drive first before restarting the system if not then if you had access to another computer, copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM which is available from the recovery CD which comes with computer. If you do not have the recovery CD, its available on microsoft site or is available from another computer using the same Operating System (Windows XP ). The location may be C:\i386\ntldr C:\i386\ntdetect.com use a bootable disc to restart the computer (the Win XP bootable CD or Win 98 bootable CD worked). After entering MS DOS mode, copy these 2 files to the C drive in the proper location. After restart, then pressing F10 on start up (used for system recovery ), then start the repair of Windows via system recovery This will reinstalled all Windows drivers and system files, while preserving all data on your computer.
