Im at a friends house, and they wanted their laptop formatting, i said i would do it, but they dont have the recovery discs, so [as i have normally done many times before] i assumed i could use their windows xp disc and boot it up through that and format it that way...

when i do try to do it this way it comes up with "caldera dr dos" and gives me a set of options which i have no clue about

Is there any way i can format the laptop using the XP disc without dr dos coming up?


sorry if this makes no sense, i dont know how to explain it haha

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help


Merry Xmas + a Happy New Year :cool:

What is the make and model of the computer?
Is it a recovery disk or an actual XP install disk?
What options does the disk give you?
