Yeah, is there a way to format WITHOUT downloading those 6 floppy disc things? cause i dont have any floppy discs and when i tried before, it didn't work.

if you have a link to how i can, or what i can download, can you post it?

or there are others like, get a big server and hopefully it has a xp onto it then set your computer up with the server, then make it boot to GHOST from the server then that will reinstall xp or any other windows.
