Hi :slight_smile:
Is your HDD still seen in the bios?
As for formatting with 6 floppies. 1 should be enough.
Using the XP disc to boot, you should be able to format then install from that.

To give more help you would need to give us more specifics on your hardware components and how you have them setup?? What O/S are the 6 floppies? Don’t you have XP SP2 on CD?? Toss ME it stinks…I used it and it caused more problems then it helped. The O/S XP pro can format your HDD if you use it from the CD/DVD drive to format the HDD is faster and more efficient…
