to format the drive? You'll need to.
i have an ibm netvista pentium 4 2.53ghz cpu 512mb ram currently running windows 2000 pro
im trying to upgrade to windows xp pro so i went into the bios set the pc to boot from the cd drive once i put the xp cd in it asks me to hit any key to continue setup after i hit a key it goes into setup mode but heres the thing the screen stays blank the blue setup screen does not show up i still hear the pc runing the setup but it just doesnt show anything on the screen also what i noticed is that the cpu heatsink and the case fan both stop working once setup begins i tried this on several ibm netvistas with just about the same configuration but its all the same result
why is that any help please
