What Operating system are you going to install?

windows xp

Boot from the disk (insert disk, restart system and look out for the "Press Any Key to boot from cd" messge)

Wait until Setup loads up. Now just follow the on-screen instructions for how to format. (You want the "Install Windows" option not "Repair Windows")

If you refomat you will lose everything so first of all back up all your documents and picures.

Next do you have the drivers for your mother board, graphics acrd modem etc.

and a copy of the windows system on a CD? What operating system?
