I have tried everything I can find to either do a total reinstall of Win xp home and remove everything off my hard drive. I want to clean the drive up renew everything., Unlike win 98 etc I cannot use format. There has to be a way.
So far All I can come up with is buying a new hard drive and starting from there. Its driving me mad. No to tears. some of the windows files seem to be missing.
I don't want my docs and folders. I don't want anything at all on the drive that was there before.
I'm not getting the right menus when I put the xp cd into the drive. its not asking meif I want to do a clean install It wants to put a parallel version on there or attempt to install to myother hard drive.
I have all my stuff emails doc pictures important things also backed up to dvd.
KIlldisk will wipe everything on the drive found click here including the partion. You will then need to recreate a partion and format it which you should be able to do with the xp disc if not then boot with 98 boot disc change to the c drive and type fdisk create a primary partion then reboot and format by typing format c:
