Are you in front of this computer? When did you get the error? Months ago? Now?

I can see where your coming from though gerryf what I have explained has been a bit wishy washey.
I think though thinking back I stopped the installation somewhere during it for some reason. Meaning that Win 2000 had been deleted and when I tried to use the Windows XP disk it obviously brought up the error message i'm getting now.
Just I know if I would have taken my time and at least read everything more carefully I wouldn't be in any of this mess!

I managed to get my hands on a Windows XP Professional Disk and it has got further than before but now I'm unsure what to do! Heres the message I get (long)
The partition is either too full, damaged not formatted or formatted with an incompatible file system. To continue installing Windows setup must format this partition.
Format the partition useing the NTFS file system <Quick>
Format the partition using the FAT file system <Quick>
Format the partition useing the NTFS file system
Format the partition using the FAT file system
What one do I choose?????

Your cd-key will not work on that.
Use your cd and it will ask you for proof of previous purchase...then insert that cd., then use your cd-key
