eMachines recovery cd.

  Andrew P 11:49 16 Feb 2003

hi all,
this is for a friend. he has an emachines computer which he bought early last year from pc world. he needs to format the hard disk and reinstall windows xp. does anyone know what type of recovery cd the emachines computers use? Is it the one where you put it in the drive and then it loads some files before you get a blue screen saying 'Welcome to Windows XP setup'?
many thanks,

I have just done this with an emachine running ME.
In my case i put the recovery CD in and started the comp and it did it all auto .You do not have much control and of course it wipes the HDD .
It is great for the non skilled but rubbish if you need control.
