Hi, how can I delete the OEM OS from my spare laptop and recover the 40gb to enable me to install win 98se and use some old material I have and would like to see again, Dennis

What type of old material, you should be able to see it using XP?

You could try using XP's Compatibility mode click here to use your old material.

before going ahead in wiping the drive,follow MAJ's advice.Again,can you post exactly what will not run on xp.


If you indeed need to wipe the harddrive Killdisk click here and Eraser click here will do the job.
Dban will also wipe your drive click here
