I used my personal XP cd, the companies, and now HP's cd
that's exactly what happen 3-4 years ago. everytime you reformated the problem stayed because they put something in the boot sector that would not go away. so as soon as you reinstall windows it would look fine for a momonet, but the longer you messed with it, the more goofy stuff would happen

back then we would have to take the hdd out of the machine and slave it to another computer and use partition magic secure data erase feature (which took a long time to do) to fix the hdd so that the problem would disappear.

powermax speeded that process up considerably

powermax didnt even locate my drive to format it. What I did today was use a regular copy of xp with no service packs, instaled the drivers, then updated it one by one and so far so good.

Something wrong when you install with SP2? I've heard some new update from M$ are messing up HP computers.

on your techie toolkit cd, there is something to clear that bootsector up or there is a tool on there that should recognize your hard drive to delete it.

you could also put another hdd in and stay away from windows updates.

are these desktops or laptops?
what kind of hard drive is it?
