...before i throw this piece of $%*t out the window. Ok...I had XP, couldnt figure out how to format it..so I through in my Win. ME recovery cd in to see if that would be able to get me somewhere. Well, it wiped out XP and now I just have ME now. Now, I dont know how to format ME either. I dont have any disks other than the ME recovery cd, and XP home edition cd. ME came with the pc installed and the only disk that came with it was the recovery cd. I bought XP from a tech, so it is the oem version. So all I have there is the installation cd. Can someone please hold my hand, and step by step me through this !
