I just bought a brand new hard drive with a new xp home edition, i installed and everything was great....3 days later got some viruses that have been giving me problems so i thought why not format and start fresh . So i starting using the xp cd method to do the new instal and format at the same time but when i got to the step where it asks you to press D to delete the partition of your choice which is my primary hard drive it says cannot perform operation as theres temporary setup programs that cannot be deleted. How should i go about formating and installing windows? Is there anything i can do or delete so that xp setup allows me to delete the partiton and wipe my drive?
any help greatly appreciated
