I am trying to sell my Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop. It came with Windows XP Home Basic and I upgraded it to Windows Vista Home Basic. To be honest, the whole Vista thing frustrated me so much that I bought a MacBook Pro and very happy with that. I can't find my Installation CD for either OS for my Dell Laptop though, and want to wipe all my files and software etc. of the Harddrive before I sell it. Don't want someone to be stuck with my crap, and also don't want them to see all my crap! I was wondering whether you could tell me a safe, easy way to clean the harddrive leaving only the operating system on it.
Thanks for any help,
