Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
My Maxtor's hard drive is 160 GP and sometimes I can't make format or partions and if I can it appears only 130 GP and when I installed windows my pc appears no partion. And there is quick flash of a blue screen and the machine reboots again.
I was given the usual boot options and tried to boot-up in Safe mode but the same thing happened. No matter which mode I try, it just reboots over and over again.
I would appreciate your advice with this problem.
I have 160 GB HDD. I want to fix this at the position of primary master or slave for doing low level dos format and making partition. But how? Plz answer me.

If you're trying to format this drive, and you have nothing on it you want, then I would suggest that you use a windows 98 boot disk HERE. And first thing you need to do is load dos by putting the floppy disk in your drive A: after you create it from that site of course. Then allow dos to boot up. I'd opt for the allow cd rom option when it asks. After you get a dos prompt A: type in fdisk. Go to the display partions section and see what your drive is partioned as? Once you find that out, I'd delete the partion from the main menu choice delete partion. After that create a new partion from the main menu. Creating a new Dos partion will allow you to choose the size of the partion you want, then after that it will create your new Dos partion. When that's done, exit fdisk, and go to the A: prompt and type in format c: This will format the drive all over again, and give you a clean fresh starting point in which you install your OS.
