re-installing XP


Active Member

I'm trying to do a fresh re-install of XP. I've got to the bit where it asks if i want to delete the old partition and I've said yes, so it now says "please wait", while it I guess it's reformatting the drive.

However it's been running overnight and still says "please wait". I appreciate that it's a 500gb drive, so will take a while, but is this normal or is it stuck?

Should I reboot and format the drive and start again or wait a while longer for the XP install disk to do it's thing?

Reboot, even a 500Gb drive should not take that long.
