Hi there,

I have got so far with a reinstall of XP and I need advice on what to do next. I don't know what to delete? This is the screen I am on...

What do I do next?

I don't need to back anything up. I just want to format everything and start again.

Advice appreciated.IMG_0591b.jpg

Highlight each partition you want to get rid of, and press D. It will ask you to confirm it, then bring you back to that screen. Do that for each partition, then you can use the drive in its entirety for the new partition for your reinstall.

Thanks.

Is it safe to delete all the 5 partitions? I don't really know what they all are.

I would only do the first drive now. It looks like that drive is about 190GB in size; the second drive is only 38GB, and you can do that from inside Windows. Let it do the full reformat, not the quick option when you get to that point.
