Hi all - hoping for a bit of help here. I'm trying to reinstall Windows XP before I dispose of a desktop, which I have managed to do before without too many problems. This time, however, when I put the recovery disk in the dvd drive and hit the 'del' key on the start-up screen to enter set-up mode, it will go to the first warning screen telling me that all data will be lost, etc press 'C' to continue. At this point nothing happens, pressing 'C' doesn't do anything and the screen just sits there and does nothing.

Any help gratefully recieved!

What type of hard drive is in the PC, if it is SATA you have to install the drivers in the first part of the installation process using the F6 key. This has to be done with a floppy disc with the drivers copied to it or you will have to integrate the SATA drivers into a copy of the OS.
