Reformatting my hard drive

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by VenusGirlTrap, Jul 7, 2004.

  1. I finally decided to just reformatt and I got insturctions off of the internet, but when I try to make a boot disk I get a screen that says:The file ‘aspi2dos.sys’ was not found. Windows needs the disk labeled Windows Me to continue…etc.

    So, can anyone give me detailed instructions on how to reformatt? I'm so dumb when it comes to computers, should I just take it into Best Buy and have them reformatt it?

    set BIOS to boot from cd, put in windows cd, follow on screen instructions.
     
  3. How do I set bios to boot from CD? By the way, this is the reinstall CD that came with my computer. Any other tips?

    Thanks.
     
  4. Bump...never got an answer. I think I'm going to get a laptop in the fall, but I'd like to get my old comp in good working condition anyway.

    hit delete during your boot sequence

    find the boot from priority and set it to boot from CD first

    profit
