The Advanced Diagnostics Format program is different from the operating system format program.
All data on the selected hard disk drive is
destroyed during a format operation or surface analysis.
Before the customer can transfer information from the backup diskettes to the hard disk drive, the hard disk drive must be formatted using the operating system format program. Have the customer refer to the operating system manual for a description of the hard disk preparation commands.
After formatting the hard disk drive, copy the System files from the Advanced Diagnostics diskette to the hard disk drive.
