|Open the start menu, in the search box, type "recovery" then click on Recovery Disc Creation under programs. After making the recovery disc (I have not done this before, using educated guesses) close all applications and insert the recovery disc (if there are multiple, insert disc 1). Shutdown the computer then turn it on, let it boot from the disc, and if I am guessing right, it should ask you to format your hard drive in the nstallation. |
Hope the helps and works.
By the way if you also want to backup all your files, depending on how much space they take up, I would suggest getting an external hard drive and storing everything you don't want to loose on that.
