    Hello,

    I am currently running windows 2000 advanced server on one of my systems. I want to completely erase everything that is on my hard drive and do a reinstall. The problem I am having is I don't know how to do it. I did it once before but can't remember. Hopefully someone can help.

    Hi cherns24, Welcome to TSG !!
    If you have the windows 2000 cd , set BIOS to boot from cd. Let the cd run, select new install, when prompted delete the partitions . Now if you are going to use other than NTFS file system you can remove the CD and use a 98 or ME boot disk. Partion and format , then install. If you are going to install NTFS file system(2000,XP) then set your partitions now and follow the prompts on the cd.
