WINDOWS 2000
DELL LAPTOP

Hi

I am trying to do a clean install of windows 2000 on my DELL laptop
I have started from the cd and pressed F9 typed in  format C: /fs:ntfs
Hit Y get message All data will be removed on non-removable disk.
I proceed Y but nothing happens just returns to c:\windows> prompt?

Any help appreciated

tomo:

when you say "nothing happens", do you mean immediately after you see the warning message? Or do you get the warning message and then 10 or 20 minutes later or more it returns to a windows c:>\ prompt. I ask this because it's supposed to do the latter, well...more or less. Usually it will prompt you for a volume label before going back to the DOS prompt.

At the moment, I can't think from experience of anything else
that would cause what you described, unless the partition table was bad, but I doubt that. Have you contacted DELL support about this? It could be a known issue with one of their Recovery CD versions.
