Wiping HD clean and reinstalling windows
I'm new here, was looking around but couldn't really find what I was looking for in one place.
I recentley had my main HD fail on me with a windows loading screen blue screen error. I tried doing the chkdsk /p and /r aswell as fixboot, none of which worked.
I had to install windows on a spare 40g HD I had to recover the info
I'm ready to wipe my main HD clean and reinstall windows from scratch, the problem is I don't know the best way to do it.
In the past I've just formatted using the windows install disk (deleting the partion and installing on a new one) but it seems as if that isn't the best way to do it. Does that cause more errors with windows?
What's the best way to wipe a HD clean and reinstall?
