My brother has an XP machine.. The PC was built from scrap, so it doesn't have a reformat disk..
Normally, when he reformats the computer, he just deletes the c: partition, then uses the XP installation disk to reinstall XP; however, when he tries to do it now, here's the error message that he's getting:
"setup is unable to perform the requested operation on the selected partition. This partition contains the temporary setup files that are required to complete the installation"
What's that about?
Btw: He doesn't have a floppy disk on him, so scrap any ideas of using a boot disk.
Thanks in advance,
