stuck in xp setup, cant reformat

  • 0

Please keep in mind I’m no expert, and I am also not sure of the the exact model laptop but that seems right. About a year back I decided to reinstall Windows XP on an old discarded laptop. I’m not sure what CD I used but 3/4 of the way through it asked me for a disc 2. I had no idea where disc 2 was or even what disc I was using in the first place, so i gave up. So now I’m trying to start over after a year and it goes straight to the set up asking me for disc 2. I tried getting into the recovery console to reformat and start from scratch, but all it lets me do is press f2 for setup or f 12 for boot menu after either of which it immediately boots the start up. is there a way to reformat the drive from here?
