Operating System Version:windows millenium
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:pentium 2
Error Messages:

I have been attempting to format my hard drive, but failing miserably. I have foolishly fdisked, and can not get any program to run now! I put in the millenium startup disk and pressed f5. I then, after the promp A> typed format c: but nothing happened. I then fdisked it in the hope it would automatically run the format itself afterwards! This did not happen. I now have a partition  called PRI DOS. the volume has no name. When I boot all i get is the blue screen with the details about the processor etc. It won't go any further. It will not load the millenium program. I have obviously done something wrong but i don't know what?  as it stands i can not use the pc at all. I was just trying to format the hard drive as i have just got the pc from someone and wanted to wipe everything of theres off so as to start afresh.

Sorry for the delay in response, just got back from short holidays!

Try changing the boot device order in your BIOS to boot off cdrom , then floppy and then hard drive. Then insert original WinME installation cd and reboot, the WinME installation should start and format the drive for you.

To enter BIOS, hit <DEL> key on most systems or look at bottom of screen for indication.
