OK, my initial problem is in another thread, but now I am preparing to just completely reformat/reinstall.
My PC, not this one, the one at home I can no longer boot up is running XP SP 2.
I am thinking I would like to go back to Windows 2000 Pro as it gave me no problems and seemed to have better performance with my games.
I want to completely wipe my harddrive as clean as is humanly possible and start from scratch. I have Win2000 (and XP) setup floopy disks in case it won't boot from the CD Rom drive. I have my sound, video and cable modem drivers safely on a CD.
I am looking for recommendations on how to get my system as clean as possible, as I have migrated from Me>2000 Pro>XP Pro since 2000 without ever reformatting once.
