hi, does any-one know how to format/ completely clear an NTFS file system so i can start afresh?RegardK_H
by the way im on XP home
You can use fdisk and delete any non-dos partitions.Then use WinXP setup disk Not sure whether you can use WinXP setup disk to reformat as well,would try that course first.
Hi K_HYes you can use your windows XP cd to format your hard drive just mbe sure that in ur bios it is set to look for your cdrom first cheers
Boot with the XP cd and eitherChoose the Recovery Console click here and use the format commandorgo to setup where it gives you the option to format the partition before you install.
make sorry not mbe sorry for typo once you have made sure 1)insert your win XP cd in to your cdrom just as your pc starts, 2) when the cd starts to boot up press any key to continue then let the windows XP load then at the setup sequence it will show you your current drive and then you can format it I hope this helps cheers
for your extremely fast response :)RegardsK_HThanks again
