Today I installed XP on my old Compaq netbook (1gb RAM, Intel Atom, 2009 model). However during the process, errors occured and kept pressing enter until all messages were gone. Now the XP looks like it is broken. No wallpapers, programs don't run etc. Now I try to reinstall the XP but it keeps saying "Local Disk D is corrupted, cannot continue, aborting sequence." What now?

More about : format netbook anymore

Hi

Is this a re install of XP
Or changing from Linux
It seems strange the problems are from local disk d:

XP should go onto c:
There may be a recovery partition which is no longer hidden causing problems

Are you installing from a USB DVD drive ?

I would find out what brand of hard disk you have
Get a bootable ISO of hard disk diagnostics for your brand of hard disk
Then burnt ISO to cd
Boot off cd and test hard for errors
If it passes test
Re start install of XP
Look at what partitions exist

Format the partition you intend to install XP on

Best of luck
