Long story short, I've reformatted my HD via the XP installation disk and installed XP again when it screwed up. It actually warns you that installing an OS over another may result in problems which it already has.
How would I completely wipe it clean like it was new?
Try booting into widnows recover console and type format C:\, i think that all u need to type, or is there a bit where u hav to say "NTFS" or "FAT32". Oh, ignore, everyone contradicts me, i try to help, i just don't know anything it seems!!!
installation formats ur hard disc already, before it starts to copy files. Its called destructive install.
I d/l'ed SeatoolsDOS.iso but there weren't any directions...big surprise. I have a feeling I'm supposed to burn this to a cd and it boots from there. Too bad I don't have any cd's around....just DVD's. I suppose I could set the BIOS to boot to my DVD drive... Yaaaaaaawn
