I am reformatting my HP Pavalion zv5000 laptop. I am using the disks supplied by HP to do this. I was unable to boot this machine up so I booted from the Operating System recovery CD. I know that this is going to erase all data off of this machine, but I am at peace with this.
My questions so far are:
1. Do I use the FAT32 file format or the NTFS file format?
2. What about partitions? There is a partition called C: Partition1 (NTFS) at 76309 MB and there is 8 MB of unpartitioned space. Do I delete the larger partition? Both?
This is as far as I have gotten so far
