Question about UPS Battery Backup Systems
There is more than one way to format a Hard Drive, but here is just one: With a Windows XP CD ROM, boot to the CD (You might have to change the "Boot Order" in your BIOS if you don't get the screen "Press any key to boot to this CD...." on cold boot/reboot with the CD in the CD tray). After booting to the CD, it will start checking your system and installing files and then eventually take you to a Installation/Partition screen, you'll be able to delete and re create partitions and Format your hard drive after re partitioning. Also choose "NTFS normal" and not "NTFS Quick" if you want a thorough formatting of your hard drive to occur.
Just add a post if you need any clarifications.
Good luck, an have fun!
