  1. Are you booting from the Windows XP CD? You can delete the partition during the Windows instalation.
  2. That I didn't try yet. I kept using the Windows XP Professional to reformat. I want to thank you for your suggestion. I hope it works, because now I have a Windows XP and 2 versions of Windows XP Professional on one hard drive; and needless to say it is reaking habit on my software programs.
  3. Yep, just boot off your XP disc. You can delete both of the current partitions. You want the whole drive to be unallocated. Then do the full format and windows install.
