Hey guys. I'm having a problem reinstalling Windows XP Pro. The reason I had to reinstall is because Windows kept hanging at the boot screen after I tried to copy a large file to another partition and then rebooted (I really don't know why it did this). So I was reinstalling and when I booted from the CD and tried to reformat it to a NTFS volume it never gave me the option to. It basically said it didn't recogize any format to install Windows on so I needed to create one, but it will not let me. Right now I have one 92GB partition formatted NTFS that I have for all my media that I'm not reformatting. I also have 2 other partitions of about 10-12GB each, one for the Windows partition and another for a Linux one I'm trying to make. My question is how can I format my partitions to NTFS without an OS on my computer? And if that isn't possible through a boot disk or something, do I have to install another hard drive to be able to get to the unformatted partitions and then partition them to NTFS? I really don't want to do this if I don't have to, but I'll do whatever is necessary. I'm pretty pissed that Windows screwed up on me like this, but I just want to be able to installed the OS back on my computer without going through a ton of hassle. Thanks for any help you can offer and I hope this doesn't sound too confusing. As it stands I have one partition (12GB) that is unpartitioned and one 12GB partition that is partitioned in some kind of Raw mode that it did when I told it to format the partition (I can undo this though).
