Alternatively..if you have a 2nd PC, take the hard rive out, set the jumpers to make it a slave, pop it into other machine, find it in explorer...right click and select format..hey presto. Run the scan disc afterwards to check then drop it back into original case. Download a boot disc from web if your OS CD is not a bootable one.
