Default Windows ME

Hello everyone,

I am using a laptop with Microsoft Windows ME with no Floppy Drive, and I want to boot in MS DOS mode to format my computer.

Is this possible and how do I do it?

Go into the Cmos of your laptop and make your CDrom the first boot device.Then you can format C: form the dos prompt after ME CD boots into the dos command prompt.
