I wish to reinstall window xp on a clean slate what do i put in to re format my file system is NTFS I have a dos disk what do i type in at the A promt
You need to boot with the WinXP CD if your pc will allow that. Go into the BIOS and see what options are there under boot devices.When you boot with the XP CD you will get an option to reinstall and format ect.
try what Diodorus Siculus says above, failing that download and make a win98 start-up floppy from click here (win98 is the best one)boot with the disk in the drive, choose start without cd rom support, once the ram drive is created, type at the prompt A:>D: +PRESS RETURN to change to the ram drive (change D: to whatever your system says is the ram drive)then type format c:once done, restart your pc, enter the bios and change the boot sequence to boot cd rom first.insert your winxp cd, remove the floppyrestart pc againon rebooting, windows xp setup will start automatically. choose install and follow the on-screen instructions.This format will be fat32, if you want NTFS you will have the choice during install.good luck
