hi i currently have windows me and was going to install windows xp, so if i was to use FDISK to format the whole drive, then all data including my operating system would be erased, but if i inserted the windows xp disk after format then would the disk auto load and install the operating system? my pc didnt come with a windows disk and instead installs it from a saved partition from a restore disk.

if you have a full copy of xp load it up boot from cd drive during setup you will get the option to format and parttition
