I think that is the defining definition of starting over =-]

To reinstall Windows properly, you need to agree to wipe the hard disk when you are prompted. The install disk will wipe the drive clean, then start installing Windows.

If your hardware is fine, then your PC should be as good as it was when you bought it. =-]

Reinstall my vista


If you want to completely start from scratch and erase all of you files to reinstall windows, here is what you have to do. You need to "boot" from the Vista CD. To do this, you will need to insert the Vista CD and then restart the PC. After it shuts down and starts to start again, will need to press the button that says "boot options" or you will need to press something along the lines of F1 (it depends on your computer type) Pressing F1 will take you to bios. From there you will need to find "boot options" or "boot priority." Set the CD drive to be on top so it boots from the CD first, before the hard drive. Then save and exit bios. This should restart your computer. After that, continue with your normal boot up until is says "press any button to boot from CD." Press any button you want to. You should be able to follow the on screen directions for installing Vista there. Hope this helps!
