Hi Thomas,

The normal route to access the BIOS will be to press ESC then F1 during start-up. This will give you the BIOS menu. Some notebooks use ESC to show the POST progress and F2 to access the BIOS menu.

F8 will allow you to boot into SAFE mode.

F12 will allow you to select the boot device (HDD, CD, etc).

Hi,

you only have to boot from the XP CD and start the installation. During this process the harddisc will be formatted automatically.

Bye
