Disk Formatting issues.


Recommended Posts

Well, I want to format my hard drive, but the drive has a partition that is the system recovery.

So if I delete it to format the drive, how could I recover the system back up?

I also have both Windows XP professional and Windows Vista Business Eds DVDs, but I have them both as ISO files and I dont have a DVD burner.

You should be able to boot to the recovery partition and use it to do a clean format and reinstall the OS. As for your isos, you need to back them up of course if you want them. If you don't want to get a second hard drive or burner, i'd suggest a large sized usb thumbdrive or an external to back it all up to.
