The problem is that when you are selecting your installation, you are choosing to REPAIR an installation of Windows... when the install routine tries to detect previously installed versions of Windows, it brings up C:\\Windows\\. You are hitting ENTER. Read carefully... you want to hit ESCAPE, and choose NOT to repair a previous isntallation of Windows. AFter that, you can delete the partition just fine.
wrong, im not choosing to repair
im choosing "install a fresh copy of windows xp"
i continue fwd.. and then i come to the hd list where i have around 80gb of c: and 8mb unpartitioned diskspace
then i choose to delete the 80gb, but it sais i cant becuase it contain installation files for xp
so i select the 80gb for installation instead, and it comes up: Its not reccomended to install another operation system on the same partition
or something like that
so if i continue, i will install another windows so i have 2, and i will still have a full hd :S heeeelp
