  1. Hi all!
    i've got a quik simple question dealing with my dino-i-6000 dell. i bought the thing off my brother 10 months ago and i believe he did a format/reboot without using a xp recovery disk. i tried talking to him tonight about it and he said he'd need the laptop infront of him to dissect it. i really can't remember what he was talking about but he said it might be possible to do a format and reboot using the exsisting drivers/os on it?? is this possible? post questions if im not clear on anything...

    I'm not really sure what it is you;'re asking about just/what you want to do???
    Just what are you trying to accomplish. What functional end do you achieve by a format and boot withers and os on it????....suggest you speak in functional terms of what you want to accomplish as the technical terms don't help define your goal.
