Re: unable to format the system

I recommend that you download the latest erase utility from our web site at: http://www.compaq.com/support/files/server/us/download/12790.html , then boot up your server with your smart start and profile diskette. Sometimes running system erase from floppy works better. Feel free to contact us at 1-800-ok-compaq if you have more concerns.
