But "formatting" or "reformat" does not involve installing an OS. So success is assured for formatting.
-> If you need to install an OS, then you'll need a CD.
Can you share what make/model machine this is? For instance those HP and Compaqs that didn't come with restore CDs have a menu item to create the CDs. Hint: make 2!!!!!
I am trying to reformat my hard drive, but my computer did not come with a restore disk or anything. Will I still be able to do it?
