Hi,just seen on another post about formatting a HDD, It said put in the windows XP disk and boot up from that,.....ps: my disk is one supplied by Dell.....my qustion is, does that work when i put the new HDD into my laptop, which should be here today, or is there more to it..
Just so you can check against mine. It says "Operating System re installation CD Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" Only use this disc to reinstall the operating system on a Dell computer The CD is not for re installation of programs or drivers. For distribution only with a new Dell computer. Basically the colour is maroon with a strip of white at the top.
