Here if I want to wipe and reinstall I boot my XP CD and about step 5 at http://www.blackviper.com/Articles/OS/InstallXPHome/installxphome1.htm I can delete C: and then tell it to use that open space then XP's installer will ask me about formatting. I use the QUICK option.
I start to do format my laptop, press F8, select partition C:, NTFS file system, ENTER, but not continue to do format
Setup is formatting... 0%
I waiting, waiting, waiting, but nothing happen, just 0%
I have windows xp/sp3
