Hi Churdy,

Hi churdy...

Start the machine with a startup disk in the floppy drive. Format again using fdisk. Delete any partition you find, then create a new partition and set it Active. (make sure to enable support for large drives when prompted.) Restart the machine and format the drive using the command format /s

Then try reinstalling Windows ME.
