I desperately need some help with the formating and repartitionning of my hard drive!!
I recently purchased a computer which had two partitions on the hard drive along with miscellaneous files and a virus leftover from the previous owner. I decided to read up on the fdisk procedure and then try it out, but I fu#@ed up. Now I have a computer which has had the partitions removed along with all data. I didn’t do a backup because the info and O/S were of no interest to me. I have Windows XP which I would like to install but first I must somehow format the C drive and partition it ( so I’ve read ).
I’ve tried all sorts of boot disks but nothing seems to work. I suspect I have to somehow use DOS to accomplish the formating and partitionning but how do I get it back on my computer? :?:
BTW- The computer is an AMD Athlon 850 Mghz, 256 Mgs of ram . The previous O/S was Windows 98.
