How To Reformat Your Windows Computer(Windows XP)

Here I will teach you my way in reformatting a PC,..

Tools we need:

1. Bootable Windows Xp Disk
2. Hiren's Boot CD (I use this to backup files from a corrupted OS)
3. Your PC
4. Driver CD or Driver Pack


Set CD/DVD ROM as Primary Boot Device

All computer has BIOS ( Basic input/output system). Here, you can set up how your PC will run. It is a blue colored full screen with different tabs like general, exit, devices and many more. Go to BIOS by simply hitting del (delete) or F2 continuously after restarting your computer.

Once in BIOS, look for the booting set up. Listed there are the devices which computer normally boots. ( Harddisk, CD-rom, Floopy Disk and Network)

Backup all you files

Use Hiren's Boot CD to boot from CD, Then choose Mini Windows Xp to access your Hard Drive so you can backup your files.

1. Insert the Bootable Windows XP Disc and make sure your first boot device is set to CD/DVD drive, once CD start to run you will prompted to press any key to boot from CD/DVD now press enter.

Hiren’s BootCD 15.1

Hiren's BootCD (also known as HBCD) is a bootable software CD containing a number of diagnostic programs such as partitioning agents, system performance benchmarks, disk cloning and imaging tools, data recovery tools, MBR tools, BIOS tools, and many others for fixing various computer problems. Many people consider HBCD an invaluable tool[2] for use in troubleshooting and recovery of computers. As it is bootable, the operating system of the computer need not be available for the tools to be usable. All that is required is that the computer is able to run Microsoft Windows and Linux (but it does not have to have either of these installed at the time of use). Some of the tools are also available when the operating system is already started.
