I'm setting up a brand new build for my in-laws. Just built the computer, 500GB hard drive. Unfortunately I forgot XP is different than vista and partitioned 50GB and installed XP there- effectively eliminating the other 450 GB.
I stuck the XP CD in while running windows and selected re-install, but now I cannot delete that partition to start over since it has setup files on it. I tried using dos for format C: but it didn't wipe it- I could probably delete the files individually, but don't want to mess anything up too bad.
So.. when I run the CD on start-up, it is not working because of the set-up files...
suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
