I need to reformat a hard drive and do a fresh install of Windows XP. The computer does not have a floppy drive, only a cd drive. I have changed the bios to look to the cd drive first when booting. However, now I can't seem to make a boot disc on a cd. I have tried following the same directions for creating a boot to a floppy, but the option to create boot disk is not there for the CD. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The windows XP cd should be bootable and you can delete and create partitions on it.
