Okay, we got this laptop and it has XP on it. Well, we have to do all the registering and stuff for it, so I'm wanting to remove XP and do a clean install of Windows 2000. Problem is, I'm having problems trying to remove it! I've had very little experience with XP and I've heard dozens of methods to remove it, none of which have worked for me. I don't know if XP does this normally or what, but it's on a C and E partion and I can't format them. I've been told I can go to the Add/Remove programs on the control panel, but that doesn't work.
Message I got when I tried to tried "format E:"
Format cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.
I could not dismount it.
I tried formatting the C: and I got a message saying it could not format it.
