    Just download all your mobo drivers first from the Asus website and burn them to a cd.

    Then once you`ve done the format and reinstall, install your mobo drivers etc.

    Regards Howard :)

    Make sure your bios is set to boot from cd, put your wondows xp cd in the drive, and away you go.
