1) make a start up disk first,go to add\remove programs (in control panel) select the tab at the top for start up, with a disk in drive A:\ click ok.
2) press the reset button on the pc,it will read the floppy and leave you with an A:> prompt
3) after the prompt type, format C:(unless the drive is a different letter)
4) if you want to boot from that drive put /s after format C: to copy the system files.

your drive is now blank, ready for a new OS
