because I wanted to just try the method used by a person in this thread
makinu1der2 suggested I post in this forum but I read the page on what to do before posting in this forum and I'd just be wasting everyone's time. I plan to reformat and was wondering if there was info before and after reformat I could gather that some guru might find useful to help the next person who experiences.
Reading my post on boot disk above is detailed. I just want to know if i can get info that could help others. And if after reformat should my computer be as it is now, ie all programs installed ect.
