Hi, I just bought a new HP laptop which came with Vista Home Premium and unfortunately Norton too.
I had a few issue with internet wireless connections, my wife installed a driver of the Netgear router that caused the sudden crash of Vista. After 2 crashes I removed that driver but since I`m fussy about it , would prefer to format the new laptop and install again Vista and start again with a fresh hard drive problem free.
I don`t format harddrives from years so I`d appreciate if someone could gives me advices and instructions on how to to proceed from A to Z, especially since I remember that formatting in WIN98 was easy from DOS but already with XP was harder to do it......and with Vista I don`t know where to start.
