:evil:

For a while I had installed XP Pro and it ran great. I guess I download too much stuff and I accidently must have downloaded something with some bad viruses. It was called Super Mario 2 or something like that. Anyways, it was messing with my computer. So I tried to reinstall the operating system. I got 98 up (which is what I upgraded to from Windows XP), and it ran fine. Then I attempted to reinstall windows XP. Not being very computer literate, I guess I ended up installing windows XP on my second hard drive and so I have 98 on my first hard drive and XP on my second hard drive. I just want XP on my first hard drive. I don't mind if I have to reformat either. I'm just looking for a solution to clear all the operating systems and just get windows XP on my first hard drive. Any help you could offer would be great!

Thanx! :evil: :twisted: 8O

you can disconnect the 2nd hard drive.....and format the first one....with the win xp cd.....
then disconnect the 1rst hdd and format the second one...
that way you dont format the wrong drive.....

Just use a win 95 or 98 boot disk and run FDISK ( you will loose all data )
and delete all partitions.
Set your machine to boot from CD rom, put the XP cd in, start the machine and follow the instructions.
