formatting c drive for reinstall Windows Xp

  Newuser3477 23:14 04 Dec 2006

I want to clean a windows millenium computer and install windows Xp
If I completerly erase my hard drive with the Paragon Disc wiper on the Dec cover disc, will the hard drive be ready for the xp installtion disc which I have, or will I have to format the hard drive somehow. And if so how do I do it

Set your CD Drive to be the first boot device in your BIOS.

Pop your Windows XP CD in the drive and let it load. It will deal with the formatting for you.
