Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I can't remember how to start reformating my hard dive
If putting the disk in and restarting doesnt work, restart your computer and press the key to enter setup(should say on screen) ussually F1 or del. go to boot sequence and place the CD drive above the Hard Disk Drive. Restart your computer after saving changes then it should say "Press any key to boot from CD..." press space (or any other key) and follow the on screen instructions.

Several ways to do it. If you have the XP CD, you should be able to boot to it. Delete the partition and then choose to "Format the partition using the NTFS file system."
Remember to backup any data before you start. It will wipe your drive clean.
