But I'm installing the XP disk. The same rule applies for XP?

I'll want to format my primary HDD. Is there a technique for that, like something under BIOS or something?

So, what do you think, doctor? What's wrong with me?</P>

The update disk doesn't need any files from any other OS, it just needs proof that you own another windows OS. If you format and try to install from the upgrade disc, it will, somewhere during the installation, ask you to insert your other Windows cd.

Check the bottom of http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...october07.mspxthis page</a>.
