I would use windows to partition the drive. Type computer management into the start search box, select disk management and change the hdd size by reducing it and then format the new drive.

sounds as if the HDD crashed. No fix but to replace HDD. Sometimes putting it in the freezer 2 hours and then letting it thaw works, but after multiple attempts and the same failure, you will need a new HDD.

SOURCE: Can i use a 3tb hard drive on acer z5610 running windows 7

The simplest way would be to reformat as NTFS. Use the advance options to delete and re-create partions.

GPT requires EFI and there is some debate whether Win 7 can be installed. I have not tested yet and quite frankly I would not waste the time and effort. Your hard drive and partition size is well within requirements. Good Luck

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings and then click "next."
3. Click 'repair your computer'.

If you do not have the disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
