For Windows XP, how do you format the harddrive without user input?

There's no switch to force the format, afaik. The closest you can get is format <drive letter> /q /v:<new volume label>, but you'll still get prompted for the drive's current volume label.

Also, for non-technical reasons, you don't do this. Cuz you'd be a dick if you did.

Batch file? Hm, how?
Edit: Oh, and i'm not trying to be malicious. I format my drive CONSTANTLY (For no reason whatsoever) and i'd love to make it quicker. For me, at least.

Really? My interests in batch automation don't concern that particular topic, so I never tried to figure it out. Could you PM me with how you'd send output to the console? Does it involve grabbing the tty in the batch file?

Right... and format <drive letter> /q is not fast enough. My advice would be to enjoy the learning side of "hacking", and stop trying to be a script kiddie.

If you're really that interested in learning how to do something, why not Google and read up?
