ok thanks for the help....like i said i'm a little skeptical b/c i did delete something already (formatted the cdrive so now its at 0mb...but when i choose it and then format it using the nfts option...but this is where it sits there at 0% and than pops up with this partsmgr.sys blue screen saying drivers pending aren't etc.....do you think i maybe just didn't delete the right thing, i mean it gives me only one option to choose from (my cdrive, aka hd)...
i'll try it again when i get home, but you think it will bypass that partsmgr.sys blue screen?

also i press the d button, than enter, then the L button to delete everything?

If you follow the directions during the setup phase it should work. If it still is giving you that problem try either a different xp cd or cd rom. Is your cd bootable? or is one of those you found?

i've been looking at other posts about using a boot disk??...
like this one

If your using the boot disk, need to go to dos and type fdisk. Removve all partitions. Reboot. Then bo back in fdisk and create the partition. Reboot. Then go into cd rom support and then format c:

i had win me...should i use a boot disk too? or is it fine just to boot off of the win cdrom itself......i just really want to get this to work....thanks

If your booting from cd, there is no need to fdisk. Some people dont have the bootable cd and have to use a bootdisk. You should be able do everything from your cd. Remember delete all partitions first during the setup process ( when it asks where you want to install windows) then a format.
