Answers :

Re-boot the computer with with windows disc inserted into cd-rom drive. When computer says "press any key to boot from cd" then press any key. Windows installation should start. Choose to start new installation. Windows will then delete your files and folders & install windows. If the computer does not ask you to but from cd when you re-start computer you can change the boot sequence in the BIOS so the cd-rom is the first boot device or start the windows disc from my computer when windows is on.
Hello there:
\015\012if you are going to use a new operating system and want to reformat the harddrive rember youwill lose all information on the drive .
\015\012if this is what you want to do just put in the cd and when it says install the xxx operating system say yes than it weill 3eventually come up to where it shows you the drive and it will give you the option to delete the exsisting partition say yes and continue than it weill tell you about all information being lost press the continue and it will erase all info then it will show you your new partition and it will ask about your new partition this is where you are going to install the new operating system , and from here it will either do a quick or a full format i gnerally do a full format works a lot better but it is slower , than just follow what comes on the screen. ok hope that this all helped i know it is long and drawn out but it is needed in order to understand it ok?
