|The recovery process means you will lose all you files, not a problem if you have everything backed up.|
If you haven't, take the HDD out & Slave it to another HDD/comp ( no need to bolt it in, just cable it & leave it outside the case ) You may have a choice of jumper settings on the master HD, such as master with slave or ms. Copy your stuff ( don't forget your emails & address book ) onto the host HD or other media.
Now put it back in your comp, once again, no need to bolt it in at this stage ( change the jumper, back to where it was ) go into the Bios & set the boot to either Boot from floppy or CD 1st. Now off the boot floppy, fdisk, reboot & format. Or, from the CD, delete ALL the partitions & format to NTFS. You lose everything.
Now reinstall the operating system.
Setup cannot find the End-User License Agreement (EULA). Setup will not continue
