Why do you want to format your hard disk for? Do you wish to install a new operating system on your PC, or do you want to format a second hard disk.

If you want to install a new operating system, then you will need to install a CD drive or an external CD drive and then you can format your drive and install a new operating system.

Use a floppy disk, This must be a boot disk with operating system files. Suggest you use Windows ME.

Reformat without a cd


You cannot reformat without an OS CD. You should have at least the Windows Installer to be able to format your PC. After that, you may also need your utility CD to install your PC Devices' drivers. In the absence of Utility CD, you may also download drivers from the internet.

Format C drive


You can not format the drive C without a CD. The drive C if we compare it with the body that is the organ or tissue of the computer. You can not format with itself so you need to have a CD. You can contact Microsoft center to buy a CD or you can buy it online at (www.ebay.com).

Format pc without cd


You could use a copy of bartpe on a usb stick. same with windows if you know how to copy your original cd properly. Its actually pretty easy I have both bartpe and xp pro on a single stick and used it to install to an older compaq that had no cd drive. setting up the stick for bart pe can be a little bit of a challenge but there is plenty of help on the web for it.
Same with how to copy your original xp cd.

Gigabyte motherboard cd


You do not not need your motherboard CD to preform a format on your drive. Any windows CD. Win XP home, XP Pro, Win 2000 will format your hard drive. You can also use the hard drive's Mfg's utility disks & creat a bootable floppy disk or creat a bootable CDROM disk that will not only allow you to format the hard drive but also fun testing on the drive. You can even pick your cluster size & FAT file. Write down the name of your drive & model no#. Go to the Mfg's web site & download the utility software. Chances are Windows will have most of your boards drivers in it's data base. All you'll need to do is download from Gigabyte your missing drivers. You'll need you complete model no# & version no# if you can find it.
