We're not an 'always on call' free service, I'm afraid, and if you start doing something before you actually receive assistance you could end up with a mess.

If your Windows XP installation has been formatted to NTFS file system, then you'll need to delete the partition and create a new FAT32 partition in its place before you can format it for Windows 98 or Windows Me.

Why would you want to get rid of a really good Windows version and replace it with a crappy one anyway?

Boot from a Windows 98 startup diskette, use 'FDISK' to delete the partition(s) and then to create a new one(s) in its place.

Then format.

Hi and welcome to Daniweb,
You have hijacked a very old thread (Aug 29th, 2004)
Please start your own thread and try to be clear as to what you have done.
I have formatted XP successfully = I have deleted my windows XP instalation from my drive by formatting it.
I am unable to open any CD.. You now do not have an operating system to open any CD.

Go to the thread at the start of (Windows NT / 2000 / XP) and read about formatting and installing XP. If you still need help after that, start your own thread and supply a lot of information about your machine, OS and what you are trying to do.

Good luck.
