How to get rid of 2 XP Pro Os in 2 partitions?

  rickf 16:26 13 Oct 2004

A friend's computer has Os installed in each of his 2 partitions. Both seem to be corrupted and he wants to start afresh by reformatting both patitions and install just one OS in the C Drive. How do you format both the partitions as when installing XP after formatting one partition, it goes on automatically to installing the OS. Any help would be appreciated as he has asked me for help for this w/end.

Boot with one OS (preferably the one on C drive).

Format the other drive.

Boot with XP CD.

Format the C drive.

Or use the options for partitioning from the XP CD.
