If you're re-installing xp....


QUICK FORMAT & RECOVERY

Set your Bios so that the first boot device is the CD-Rom
Place your XP disc into the drive.
Restart your computer.
My computer says press any key to boot from cd.
Wait for a menu.
Press ?R? for Recovery Options
You'll be asked which windows install you want to work on.
C: should be one. Enter the #1 above the q key, not the #1 from the number pads to the right. Hit enter.
You'll be asked for an admin password. If you chose to enter one during your original install enter it now. If none, hit enter.
You'll get a c:\windows prompt.
Type format c: and hit enter.

XP doesn't offer boot options.

XP uses window's own version of DOS, a cut down, lite version. It doesn't do as much as MSDOS would, and offers less options. I don't believe there is a restart in MSDOS mode on any v. of windows later than ME.

That's not going to work because Windows will not let you format the drive that it's running on. You can only format your c drive before anything loads which is why you can't do it from the Windows dos prompt.
