Re: formate window xp in NEC laptop
I suppose the upgrade was a success. Then go to the boot sequence on the bios and set it to the cd rom. but make sure that the cdrom is working fine, meaning try to install it on a differn computer and see if you can play audio cd on it to see if its working or not.

put it in your CD ROM then press F10 to get into bios and under

You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.
of course you can format your laptop's hard disk. but you cannot do it while you are running windows. to format your hard disk and install a fresh copy of windows, you need to have 1) Windows XP CD Installer and 2) a valid cd key to complete your installation
Load the CD Installer to your CD/dvd drive and restart your windows. When booting, your laptop recognize a bootable CD so it boots from there and not from your hard disk. Just follow the on-screen instructions to proceed.
