Welcome to Fixya. Do you have a copy of the CD of your operating system? if you have then you can format your mini laptop by creating a usb bootable installer using a flash drive.

I am selling my computer and I would like to reset it back to factorys settings.


If you have the restore disks then you can do a factory reset. If there is no restore disk then you will have to re-install windows from the Windows Installation CD. If you do not have the CD then you may want to sell the system without any operating system.Download a boot disk called Boot and Nuke to format your hard drive before you sell the system. This will erase ALL data from your hard drive.

The Windows XP disc you are using doesn't that the Hard Drive Controller Driver for that system native to the operating system. Since the system is a Mini and has no floppy drive the only option is to slipstream the HDD controller drivers into the OS CD.

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).
