I want to reformat.

If you have XP SP2 CD then you can insert the XP CD, boot the PC and keep tapping the delete key until it enters set up, change the boot priority to boot from the CD ROM drive first, press F10 to save and exit, type Y to confirm, press enter and it will reboot
Look for press any key to load from CD, press enter then follow the instructions
It should be, Press Enter to install windows
Press F8 for the license agreement
Press D to delete the partition, type L to confirm, press enter, press enter to format, leave it on the default setting fo NTFS
It will take a minute per GB of hard drive

Go to Add/Remove Programs and put a check in the box next to "Show Updates" at the top of the window, then scroll down in the list. SP2 should be quite near the bottom.

Click Start then Run and type c:\windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst\spuninst.exe in the Open box then click "Ok". When the Windows XP Service Pack 2 Removal Wizard starts, click "Next".
Follow the instructions on the screen to remove Windows XP SP2.

yeah, when I go into it and manually look for it, there's no folder $NtServicePackUninstall$
