    Go into your BIOS and set the boot order to CD ROM as the FIRST BOOT. Save and restart with the WXP CD in the CD ROM drive. Continue to install windows at the prompt and you will eventually see a screen that will ask you to format the hard drive.

    Monica,

    Does the system already have a drive in it?

    Are you intending on using this drive for data, or for the operating system?

    We need to know more about your system configuration in order to give you the correct answer. Please tell us more about your system.
