Hiya. I'd like to reformat my hard drive (which I've never done before). One question I have, is do I have to first uninstall windows? I currently have xp pro installed, but I got xp home with the computer when I bought it (don't ask me why, I have no clue. That's what I was given :confused:

You dont need to uninstall windows. Are you planning to do a new install? If you are then you get an option to format your drive before installing windows
