Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 570E Notebook ?

I need to format an HDD for an IBM thinkpad 570e that came without one, and from what a lot of people say, it won't take windows xp pro. I don't have any other OS, so has anyone tried to do this successfully??

Answers :

Before formatting the drive ....
\015\012you will need to save your drivers on a cd/dvd disk if you dont have the original disks
\015\012Formatting the drive should be straight forward,
\015\012remove it from your machine and take it to another computer,
\015\012your IBM Thinkpad should be staight forward to reinstall even without taking your drive to another computer,I found this step easier tho....
\015\012after formatting this drive you could just insert to your machine and then reload your software from the beginning providing you have your disks,
\015\012You might have a password locked hard drive and or your bios may be locked also ,in this case replace the drive after which your new os install should give you access and functionality,
\015\012update your drivers on the internet and SP2 updates will give you hi speed usb 2.0 functionalilty.....
\015\012Good luck with the formatting,if you need help let me know,
\015\012have a great day
