Is it still possible to format WinXP when the only CD for windows xp you have is the 'recovery' one the the PC Company supplies you with? Because I don't want to go find some formatting instructions, to find I have no windows xp cd thus causing myself a lot of trouble.
Any help will be appreciated.

you should be able to format the drive and the rebuild the system form the recovery CD.

back up anything you want to keep first.
