Question about Quantum Fireball Lct15 (QML20000LC-A) 20 GB Hard Drive
I wanted to do a clean install of xp, system was running really slow, now no matter what option I take during the formatting of the harddrive, xp setup says that the drives are bad. The bios recognizes the drives. I was utilizing the drives inside of windows before I decided to a clean install. Are BOTH drives really dead or is it something else
Hi, considering that the 20G hdd was manufactured years back, it is possible that they are really at the end of their life. Being detected in the bios does not necessarily mean that everything is ok with the drive(s). You may want to try a third party partitioning/formatting software such as partition magic which however would need a second pc that is fully operational and install the fireballs either as secondary or slave. Another way is to download a diagnostic software from quantum dgdsk250.exe, install in a diskette and boot your on that diskette with your fireballs installed. it will perform factory std check-up and give you info re status of hdds. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up
