  • Make sure you have the distribution disc of your IBM Thinkpad
  • \015\012
  • Make sure you have valid key for your XP
  • \015\012
  • Boost up with the XP disc
  • \015\012
  • Occasionally one may need to change the boost up sequence of the CMOS. Select boost up from CD. This would prevent the machine from boosting up from the hard drive
  • \015\012
  • Choose install the machine would format your hard drive by then
  • \015\012
  • Decide the partioning size if you are familiar with. Otherwise hit enter key to choose the default setting.
Hello,
If you had bought your OS, then you would probably be having the bootable OS CD with you.
It is very simple to format your system.
Follow these steps,
1. Restart your system and go to setup by clicking the F2 key.
2. In the setup, go to boot sequence and place BOOT FROM CD at the top of the list. save changes and exit from setup.
3. Now insert the OS CD in your drive and restart the system. The system will now start from the CD.
4. This will take you to the XP setup from where you would be asked to partition the harddisk for formating the OS.
5. follow the steps given by the setup and you have your new formatted OS.
Good luck!
