  1. my computer is running winXP pro, but i decided to format it.
    i inserted the 6 disks, chose to install a fresh copy, ect... and it started to format. while it was formatting the drive, i left for a while, and when i came back, it was done and apparantly it restarted the computer, and on the screen it says:

    Searching for boot record from Floppy A ... NOt found
    Boot FAilure
    INsert boot diskette into A:
    press any key when ready

    I have no idea what to do now, any help would be appreciated.

    Which 6 disks are you using? Are those the recovery disks? I think you need to go into the BIOS and change the first boot device from floppy to cdrom.
