    Hello,

    Have you chosen the Repair option when the installer states there is already Windows on this computer?

How would i go about formatting a computer?


How to Format a Computer


Want to know how to format a computer hard drive?Need to learn how to format your computer and start with a clean slate? Formatting a disk prepares the surface of the drive to accept and store data. Computers are often formatted before they are sold, donated, or returned to an employer. Likewise, computers with viruses or errors can be formatted and returned to their "out of the box" settings.




Warning - Formatting hard drive information does not permanently erase the data. Even after a computer has been formatted, deleted files can be easily recovered. If you want to permanently wipe your hard drive by completely overwritting hard drive data, check out WipeDrive.

Create a Startup Disk




How to Format a Computer with Windows XP
The first step in learning how to format a computer with Windows XP or 2000, is to insert Windows CD and restart your computer.


Your computer should automatically boot from the CD to the Windows Setup Main Menu.


At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.


Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.


If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.


Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition.


Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.


Select the format option that you want to use for the partition (Recommended: NTFS), and then press ENTER.


After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue installing Windows.





How to Format a Computer with Windows 95, 98, or ME
To reinstall Windows, you will need a Startup Diskette and a Windows Installation CD.

Download the Startup Diskette Creator

Note: We recommend using the Startup Diskette available on this page. Other Windows Startup Diskettes may not work with the following steps.
Once you have your Startup Diskette, insert it into the floppy drive and restart your computer.


Select option #1 - Start the computer with CD-ROM support.


After a minute or so, you will see "A:>_".


Type "fdisk" and press Enter.


If asked to enable large disk support, select Y for Yes. (Note: Some versions of Windows 95 may not be compatible with large disk support. Select N here if it does not support the FAT32 file system.)


Select Option #1 - Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive.


Select Option #1 - Create Primary DOS Partition.


The drive integrity will be verified.


Unless you are planning to make multiple partitions, select Y when asked if you want to use the maximum available size for the partition and to make the partition active.


The drive integrity will be verified again.


When completed press the Esc key to exit fdisk.


Without removing the floppy disk, press the reset button on the computer or press the keys Ctrl then Alt then Delete and release them together. This will restart the computer.


Again, select the option to Start the computer with CD-ROM support.


When you see A:>, directly above it is a message about your CD-ROM drive. It will tell you the letter assigned to your CD-ROM drive, take note of it.


At the A:>, type "format C:" and press Enter.


Press the Y key then the enter key when asked if you want to proceed with the format.


The format will probably take some time, so be patient.


You will be asked to choose a Volume Label, which is a name for your hard drive. It has no effect on the operation of your computer, you may choose any name you like.





How to Reinstall Windows XP
To reinstall Windows XP or 2000, imply insert Windows CD and restart your computer.


If your hard drive has not been formatted, Windows XP will walk you through the formatting process described above


Your computer will automatically boot from the CD and begin the installation process



How to Reinstall Windows 95, 98, or ME
After formatting your hard drive as described above, insert the Startup Diskette into the floppy drive and restart your computer.


Select option #1 - Start the computer with CD-ROM support.


After a minute or so, you will see "A:>_".


Place the Windows Install CD into the CD-ROM drive.


Type "E:" (where E is the letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive) and press the Enter key.


Type "dir" and press Enter. You will see something like the following:

Volume in drive E is 020409_1121

I want to install XP Pro on a sata drive


You need to post what Brand/Model of motherboard you are using, or search for yourself on the manufacturers website for the SATA drivers. Then you need to load the SATA drivers onto a floppy disk so that you may press F6 during the beginning of Windows Setup to load the SATA drivers, as Windows XP Setup does not come with SATA drivers.

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download

Asus P4S800D-X mobo and sata hdd problem


I believe you need to load in the SiS 180 RAID controller for this MOBO during the Windows Install.

Do this by loading the driver onto a floppy and pressing F6 when told to do so by the windows install.

Sata hd, installing windows


Hi nveronika,
First things first. Find the name of you're SATA hard disk drive.
Please go to the manufacture's web site & download the floppy drive setup/utilities bootable software or creat a bootable CD from the manufactures site. Boot the system with their software & setup you're hard disk drive which will run in a DOS like window. (This should resovle the blue screen issue).
There are two different revision for the motherboard GA-M52l-S3
(Revisions, 2.0 uses the NVIDIA® GeForce 6100 / nForce 430 chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2818
& (Revision 1.0 which uses the NVIDIA® nForce 520LE Chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2634
Which is you're motherboard? Once you find the correct motherboard you can download the the needed software directly from the web site & create the correct floppy disk needed when pressing the F6 key during windows installation. If you still get an error message try another fresh floppy disk. (Corruption of files to a floppy usually mean the floppy drive is dirty or bad or the floppy disk is bad). It is also possible that the data cable to the floppy drive is loose or defective. Downloading directly from Gigabyte is suggested over using the CD.

Good luck nveronika!

Motherboard sata driver p4vm800


Hi ben,
you can download that driver by clicking on this link:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=P4VM800&s=478

You make a floppy disk with this driver & during windows install you watch the bottom of the screen & press F6. Windows will ask you to insert the floppy disk. (Do not forget to remove the floppy disk).

Good luck Ben!

SATA HDD


you need to install the drivers for it when loading windows,,
you are on the right track by pressing F6 however you need to have the FLOPPY DISK that came with your mainboard in the floppy drive..

If you dont have the diskette then ,, the drivers are located on the mainboard cd,, its in the sata / raid folder, there should be a text document in there with the insttructions on creating a floppy with the driver files you will need.

When install windows from CD it comes up down the bottom of the screen with a "Press F6 to Specify Additional Devices" or something like that. If you press F6 then it will ask you at a later stage of the setup to provide a Floppy Disk with drivers for the unknown hardware.

If you go to the ASUS site and download the drivers you should see one there that mentions Windows SATA driver Floppy Disk or similar. Use this disk during setup in order that the Windows Setup CD can find your Hard Drive.

SATA Hard Drive(s) problem with Soltek SL-K8AV2-RL Motherboard


You must go to the motherboard manufacturers website (or it may possibly be on the CD that came with the board), and get the SATA drivers for windows to create a diskette (yes, a 3.5" floppy disk). When you first enter the windows setup screen at the bottom a message appears about hitting F6 to load 3rd party drivers, you have to do this. After a while a screen will show up and ask you for the drivers. Put in the floppy and hit S, then it should come up with a list of drivers allowing you to select the right one. Windows XP will ONLY look on the "A" drive for these drivers. Hope this helps

Did you insert the sata driver disks when prompted in the first stages of installation? I think it's mentioned as scsi drivers.
