    O S Question

    Hi there. Bought a PC from a mate of mine but the O S on it is XP FD. What the fcuk? He gave me the CD as well but I want to remove it and put a licensed O S on (I do have a XP Home version) Now, for some sorta reason I can not format this thing. If I put the CD in and try to boot from it, it just start to reload the O S. No option where you can format the drive. Pleas help me with this thing. What the fcuk is FD in any case?

    Just for interest sake, this O S does not dial on to the internet. It sees my modem in the devise manager and the driver is number one but it just doesn’t dial. Tried several modems. NO GO!!

    It will boot up to a blue screen and start loading files it will eventually stop
    Hit the enter button for install
    Hit the F8 button to accecpt the license agreement
    Then hit enter to install the OS
    The next screen will be a small graph of a hard drive
    Hit the D key to delete the partion
    Then hit the L to continue
    Then create new partion by choosing-- format with NTFS (quick)
    thats it
