    I would like to create a boot cd, from which I will be able to format my hard disk.Also, if possible, I would like to delete/create partitions in my hard disk from this cd.
    The question is what do I have to do in order to create this cd, because I have never done before something like that.:confused:
    Thank you.

    Format or partition your hard drive for what purpose? If you are going to reinstall Windows or Linux then that installation media will already have those tools there, no need for another disc. If you want format or partition a secondary drive then you can do that right from the operating system much easier.

    I want to reinstall the Windows. The problem is that the computer can't load any operating system and when I boot from the Windows installation cd the files are copied and then a blue screen with an error message appears and the computer restarts. So I want to create a cd from which I' ll format the computer on my own, so that the problem dissapears.

    What version of Windows are you trying to install ? What is the error number on the bluescreen (it looks like 0x0000007B).

    If it's XP and the error ends in 7B see if you can change the hard drive mode to IDE/ATA/Legacy in the Bios then try the install again.

    The Windows installation can delete, create, and format the drive for you. No need for another disc to do that. As mentioned above you we need more info about the version of Windows you are installing. Are you choosing to format the drive during the installation? If you tell use the exact error and the exact version of Windows you are trying to install, as well as your computer specs or model that would greatly help.

    Thank you very much. I changed the disk mode to IDE and the Windows setup works!
