    the Windows disk will do it during the install as long as you choose the full format and install option.

    it states that a newer version is on the computer, and I cannot use the current disk. I want to erase the hard drive, add the new xp and do the updates for the newly installed xp.

    does it allow you the option to delete the partition?
