download a windows98 bootdisk from www.bootdisk.com and put it on a floppy. Boot with the floppy and type format c: or format d: depending on the driveletter your 15g HD is using

he said i didn't have a floppy drive i thought, so your gonna use your friends hdd instead of your old one cos it is broke? is that about right? and its on a laptop. you will need an OS tho so what os u gonna put on it, after all even tho it boots on one laptop but not the other if u format it it will need an os on it
