Formatting System

  Pucky 13:21 21 Dec 2003

I am getting a new PC soon and will be selling my old system. I have been told that I will have to format my PC before I sell it to clear any information about myself. How do I go about doing this? I am running Windows XP, and have the original copy of Windows XP.

Insert the Win XP CD into the Rom re boot. At boot stage you will be prompted to "Press any Key to Boot from CD" press enter then follow the on screen wizard to re format and re install XP.

click here scroll to image 1.10 and this where you can delete the partiton and data.

So insert that XP disc and let the computer boot from CD...

DO NOT INSTALL WINDWOS XP just get to the screen like the one in the image.

You can then reinstall XP and it will give a fresh installation for the new users.
