Harddrive wont format.....
Good afternoon - hope everyones having a good weekend,
Trying to format a sata harddrive with windows xp from startup, I go through, select to format the partition and accept the agreement & it starts to format, then I get.
setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged.
Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to the computer. If the disk is a scsi drive, make sure your scsi devices are properly terminated.
You must select a different partition for windows xp
Sounds like the harddrive maybe nackered, was wondering is there anything else I could try before going ahead & getting a new harddive?
