My Son !
Help! my son has installed Linux as a trial on my pc i would like to format theHD so i can install win xp (i know microsoft crap) but win does not see the HD is there a piece of software to format the drive so win can see it
I have limited pc knowlege but are ok with formatting etc be gentle :?
WinXP will see the harddrive just fine. Just put the CD in and restart the computer should tell you hit a key to boot off the cd. (or restart and put the cd in - however you wanna do it)
win xp won't see the HD. You gotta get a msdos boot disk and type in fdisk /mbr and that will fix the not seeing the hard drive there is linux commands to do this but don't know any off the top of my head.
