SOURCE: Unable to Format WesternDigital USB Hard Disk

Are you formatting a new disk or an existing one? Keep in mind that the rest of us do not know all the details that you know unless you tell us & thus it will take much longer to resolve your issue.
You said "after you tried it with XP CD". Dont know what you mean. What program did you use the first time & what steps did you do?

SOURCE: Please help me with my problem?

Toan96, I would recommend that you replace the drive. Why are you reformatting? Was it because there was a problem with the drive? This message you received indicates that there's a read/write problem with the disk.

    • Format the partition by using the FAT file system (Quick)
    • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system
    • Format the partition by using the FAT file system
    • Leave the current file system intact (no changes)
    Notes
    • If the selected partition is a new partition, the option to leave the current file system intact is not available.
    • If the selected partition is larger than 32 gigabytes (GB), the FAT file system option is not available.
    • If the selected partition is larger than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT32 file system (you must press ENTER to confirm).
    • If the partition is smaller than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT16 file system.
    • If you deleted and created a new System partition, but you are installing Windows XP on a different partition, you are prompted to select a file system for both the System and Startup partitions.
  3. Press ENTER.
  4. After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to install Windows XP.

Gateway MX6455 - AMD Turion 2.0Gb with 1Gb Ram Stops working and goes to black screen after POST. Will not boot into windows. The more I try re-booting, the faster it stops.


If you recently installed and any new program it could be a corrupt driver. Boot to safe mode by hitting F8 and delete it. If you didn't, you will have to remove drivers individually. Failing hardrive is another culprit.

get a winxp installer CD, you can repartition your drive on the first part of the winxp installation process. Prepare your drivers for your machine especially the network and USB drivers which you will need to copy and transfer files firstly.
If u meant of installing an additional OS like winxp to your extra space, you need a boot loader to switch between OSes.hope this helps

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.
