un-usable instalation

March 22, 2009 at 12:24:43
Specs: Windows xp pro
just recently installed windows XP on a perfectly
capable laptop, however the installation freezes when
removing temporary files " at the end of installation".
when pc re-booted it went through instillation again but
still froze when it attempted to remove temporary files.
now any attempt to install alternative OS has failed
due to what I understand to be lack of files needed
which should be included in the full windows
installation. have not tried Linux yet since the laptop is
meant for an ict-reject. so I am asking if anybody
knows of any way of completely reformatting the hard
drive without relying on any of the above methods? any
help would be greatly appreciated.
