Hello Everybody,

When you insert XP and it goes to the blue screen to start the setup process, it asks you what partition that you'd like to setup Windows on;) ;) 

And there is also the option to "Delete Partition":rolleyes: :pt1cable: 

If you "Delete Partition", does this permanently erase the data from your hd as a wipe or killdisk; or is it the same as a format instead?:eek:  :o 

Best solution

if the xp delete/create partition is only a format, then why was I not able to "recover" ANY data from the hd with 3 recovery programs?

It does not make ANY sense......
