I used Secure Data Disposal to wipe the contents of T30-2366 40 GB harddrive at level 3 (DOD), which was successful.
Now however, when I boot up the T30, the screen says "error loading operating system, press key to restart".
If I load Parttion Magic Resure diskettes - it recognises the hard drive, but says there is an "partition tabel error #108 found" but is unable to reformat it or do anything else.
If I try and reinstall Windows XP from CD - it says " error loading operating system, press key to reboot".
Could you please advise how to reinstall Windows XP.

please check here the XP clean installation guide.
Try a low level format before.

Thank you - but if I try and reinstall Windows XP from CD - it says " error loading operating system, press key to reboot".
