Go to www.bootdisk.com and create a boot floppy.  Boot to the floppy and do fdisk /mbr.  Then reformat the partition.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/Q69/0/13.ASP&NoWebContent=1

Also a couple questions:

Are you saying that the computer won't boot from CD? from any CD?
What kind of HP?

just put the floppy disk in the drive and reboot... is usually boots from the floppy, unless if your bios settings are set to not look at the floppy disk on startup...

are you referring to creation of the boot disk? if you are creating one for win2k/xp, it will be multiple disks and you should follow the directions to extract/create the boot disk properly

Just trying to get an idea of what assisted you as the comment that you accepted didn't have any value towards the resolution of the issue. Might be best to have a moderator reopen the question for you so you can accept/split to the expert comments that assisted in you guys coming to your resolution...

this infor did not help since I did not have a floppy
just put the floppy disk in the drive and reboot... is usually boots from the floppy, unless if your bios settings are set to not look at the floppy disk on startup...

HP support gave me the info to get around the password thing.

The situation is resolved

Where is the option to close this?

racn52, if you didn't get the help you needed, just make a post in Community Support with a copy of the url to this question and ask that it be deleted.  The moderator will make a post in the question stating your request and ask for comments within 96 hrs....just to make sure that no one disagrees.  Then the question will be deleted and your point will be refunded.

As it is, you have awarded points to RevelationCS and the question is closed.

Even the experts like to learn from others...even if they don't benefit from getting the points.  I think all that RevelationCS was fishing for (as I am) was a couple details as to the "magic bullet" that HP supplied to you.

No need to reply to this, just thought you might want to know for the future.

Thanks for the info the site is not really user friendly and I did not know I assigned points.  Don't ask me why the following worked but it did.  All I know is the admin password was not longer required.
