Hi,
When your going to setup a new OS (operating system), you have to delete the current partition or disk before you install a new one, in your case you can run again the installation cd and delete first the partition and create a new one.
Hope this one helps.
Thanx

These steps are similar to other Windows OS installations (Vista, Windows 7).
Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.

after diagnose system stsate os already exist install or repair ...
select repair..if you want to reinstall fresh copy choose install instead of repair.
repair does as it says and leaves previosly installed software intact..

My Computer always restart eventhough i had turned it off,plis help me!!!!


No mention of which OS so assuming you have XP,
I would suggest a format and reinstall.
This will give the system a new breathe of life.
Heres hoping you have the OS disk,ie XP Win2K
It should be straight forward if you have the disk,
just insert disk and reboot once it restarts,
the system should ask if you want to reinstall the OS,
Select to install over existing system and let this run until its finished the new install.
When install completed activate windows,
Register Windows when your ready and dont forget the SP2 updates,do these updates if you want the devices to work properly,and all should be ok.

If you have no disks,
check if there is a partition on the C drive with a restore image on there,it will be easy reinstall from there.

Let me know if this helps,,,thanks
