If you've clicked into this thread you are now about to embark on my journey to reformat my hard drive after a year to prepare for the college encounter. I have already taken off all the files and folders and any other settings that I may need to another hard drive so that is taken care off. This is my second time reformatting and hopefully it will be better than last time (I lost all of my documents from the year before and beyond. I hope that I am prepared for any problems and hope to resolve any problems that I may encounter. So now let's join in on the journey and wait while the computer is now reinstalling XP.
