Thread: Installing Xp After Erasing Entire Drive

  1. #1
    I have had a loss of an encrypted drive. I would like to erase all data with killdisk 2.0 from my main hard drive.

    This will erase all data from both partitions on this drive, including the boot partition. If I do this and turn off the power and reboot with XP pro disk, will it install XP? Or will I have erased whatever is needed to install on the drive?

    Right now, the drive is in 2 partitions. One small partition with XP installed and 1 large partition that was encrypted. I would like to remove the partition and erase the whole thing and start again. But would like to erase with this program first.

    you can boot to the XP disc and run setup.
    or, if your CD isn't bootable, use a 98 bootdisk.
    Have your XP cd inserted, and when the bootdisk brings you to A:>
    do Eorwhatever your CD drive letter is..)\i386\setup.exe
