Not booting after formating hdd i am nt able to install neither windows vista nor xp.

Answers :

There may be many issues, lets start with the most common one,
\015\012When the notebook is starting up press the button it states to "Enter Setup" (I mean BIOS). (May be F8 or DEL) {differnt for diffent machines}.
\015\012When entered, there find the Boot sequence under the boot ot boot order menu (This may also be different for diferent machines).
\015\012When found, there set the "First boot device to be "CD/DVD" not the IDE/HD/Hard Drive.
\015\012Not put the CD, it will boot hopefully.
\015\012If the problem prevails, or there is already CD as the 1st boot device.
\015\012Then don't hesitate to contact again, and also state the error you are getting when trying to boot.
