You can use Partition Magic. By this software, you can repartition your HDD & Hide the partition that have BAD sector. Make a new partition without bad sector space & active it as a primary partition. That's ok. Now you can install XP.

FOUR bad Sectors? The harddrive is toast.



If there is any data on the harddrive you wish to save, stop fooling with it, and take it to a professional data recovery service. The more you mess with it, the harder, and less, data that can be recovered.

I stopped the formating of my hard drive and then try to reinstall windows xp, the set up stays at 27% at copying it been more then hour it running.

You may have to try formatting your HDD again. If you have bad sectors on the hard drive, an incomplete format will not be able to flag back sectors so your windows install might be trying to copy to a bad location on the HDD. (speculation) your HDD may have no bad sectors, but this is one example of what could happen with an incomplete format.
You might also have a dirty install CD. take the CD out and look at it. If it is full of finger marks you might want to clean it and try again.

Seagate sata hdd error

Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

Harddisk Bad sector & not detecting

Hi, If your partitioning and/or formatting program is already reporting "bad sectors", then your best bet is to replace the hard drive. The mere presence of bad sectors indicates drive problem which in the normal course of time/usage would increase and eventually make the drive inoperable. Using such a drive as your "C" and/or to contain mission critical files may not be to your advantage. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
