Hello, so I'm trying to help out my step brother by reformatting is ancient laptop, but it's giving me an error message during the final part of the process, deleting the partition.

I initiated the reformat process from the iso file located on the harddrive which I learned wasn't possible as it has to be done from external media like a usb or cd.

Are there any ways to delete the partitions?

Also, I don't have a windows xp disc, so the only other option is to reformat via usb. Is this laptop capable of booting from usb?
