    Formatting my PC

    I'm kinda a nub with all this, don't know too much about PC's. I think this is the right section... if not, sorry but it's the most relevant section i could find.

    Is there a way for me to format my custom PC without a windows disk? Ta

    ​Are you backing up or recovering your data, or just wiping the drive entirely, and are you going to re-install Windows?
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    USB Flash Drives my friend. There are a slew of free programs that can format USBs into bootabe drives. I use cracked Windows as well, and I just used Rufus. You just drop the Windows .iso into the program, and it formats the stick accordingly. Then all you have to do is pop it into your computer and you're done, it'll run the set-up just like if you inserted a disc. Hell, my rig doesn't even have a CD Drive
