hey,

i have a laptop that I want to format, only problem is that it doesn't have a floppy drive, so I can't get into DOS to format c:

how else can I format the c: drive [the main drive], is there some other way to get into dos other than the floppy boot disk? maybe a boot cd?

thanks!

if there is no os on the hd to use to format it you can use a windows install disk and repartition and then format the drive. you can also purchase an adapter from 40 pin desktop floppy cable and power cable to the 44 pin laptop hd connector and just hang the drive into a desktop and work it over there.
