PLEASE help. Need help formating. PIC included.
All day ive been trying to get my 120GB drive to work, it works fine now but I wanna format my other 40GB drive but I get and error if I use the disk management in xp at like 80% format. So i tried in command prompt and get this:
I have hte winxp cd but cant format that way cause it installs xp right after the format of the drive/partition. I have no floppys so cant format that way. PLEASE someone help. I cant think of any other way to format.
try going into my computer and right clicking the drive and hit format.
Tried that already. Stops at like 82 percent. And the drive is not broken. I can format and install windows but cannot JUST format lol.
go to www.bootdisk.com and get a disk to do a format from
Actually, the drive could still be broken. I'd return it and get a new one.
