That pretty much sums up what I was gonna say. Google out a WinMe disk. Don't forget though that after a format...you have to set a partition and activate it. So use a prog like Fdisk to set your partitions up. It should be on your boot disk as A:\fdisk.exe . Run through the create new partition step, lable your HD. and reset. Afterwards, run Fdisk again and select the activate partition tab. You must activate the partition before you can use it. Finally, restart and run your ME disk. It'll be something like D:/setup.exe or E:/setup.exe. Good luck

technogeek: gerryf is right.. If you fdisk after a format, you will have to format all over again.. All you do is use fdsik to set a "primary DOS Partition".. it will ask if you want to make that partition active.. Once fdisk is done setting up the partition, that partition will have to be formatted in order to be used.. So, formatting takes place AFTER you fdisk, not fdisk after you format..
