Ok I have a running working just fine dell 2400 (yes its ancient but i have no money to buy a new one) and I was recently given a dell 4400 with a corrupted hard drive that will not boot or even allow me to get to the partition screen when installing windows xp to remove the corrupted partition, a blue screen comes up and forces reboot. How can I either transfer my 2400 hard drive to the 4400 or somehow wipe the 4400 completely and install a fresh copy of windows xp?
Have you entered the bios and selected boot from the cdrom drive first? If you have and it did not work download and burn an ISO copy of Linux like Mint or Ubuntu on a CD. Enter the bios and select boot from cdrom first and use the linux CD to reformat the drive. You might even enjoy using Linux. If you do not, install XP.
