I am wanting to format this Sony Laptop. It has not got an A floppy drive. Can you tell mehow I can dothis. I have the recovery disks (all 3) but cannot find anything to reformat. The O/S is 2000 professional and I would like to install XP.Can anyone see any problem with this? Thanks. J
I have done that and get a message "Your currect installation of windows is not supported upgrade path. Seup cannot continue." I only bought an upgrade,as I had 2000 Prof. Is that the problem. I thouight if I could format the HDD I could then install XP and when asked for the O/s to be updated,I could use the 2000 or 98 disk. Can you help any further please.
The laptop is in its original condition except that it had a partitioned HDD and I merged them ,other than that it is as I bought it. I have inserted the XP disk and I get the above message. It is a upgrade disk but I thought that this would be ok. J
