Double-click MY COMPUTER, then check and see if there is a C: and a D: where D: isn't your CD-ROM drive but rather another hard drive. Then check to see if there is a Windows folder inside the D: drive if it's a hard drive.

So you have a C: and a D:? If so, which drive (C or D) has a folder called WinNT in the base directory (c:\winnt, d:\winnt)?

Then what i'd do is log into windows 2000 and format the C:\ partition. But first you should backup everything that you need saved off of that partition, like documents, pictures, etc... Post back once you have all this backed up and I will tell you how to format the C:\ drive.

You can download MSConfig for Windows 2000 HERE. Just make sure that the path you download it to is C:\Winnt\system32. Then you should be able to go to START-->RUN and type in 'msconfig' and you will be able to edit the items in the STARTUP tab.

Take out the hard drive and put a magnet on top of it and you're done!

Go to START--RUN and type in 'compmgmt.msc' Then click on DISK MANAGEMENT. Locate the C:\ partition and right click on it and select DELETE PARTITION. Once it's deleted, right click on it again and select CREATE PARTITION. Follow the instructions in the Partition Wizard and format the drive. But DONT USE QUICK FORMAT since you are formatting this drive to NTFS for the first time since it was in FAT32 format before.
