I do have some computer knowledge. My Question is I have a generic computer and a windows xp disc and I picked up a used hard drive my 80 gb drive failed and is no good. I want to totally wipe this used hard drive clean reformat and load xp. My computer has no floppy drive. It does however have a cd-r/rw drive I would assume i can get some sort of cd I can stick in the drive to do this but. Where does the computer get the driver fo a cd-r. I also know this can be done using the xp disc it aparently has a boot sector on it.
