SOURCE: How do i partion my segate hard disk, it is 5oo GB

In order to partition a drive, you must use the partition manager. There is a command-line version of this application that is more consistent between the different Windows OS's so I'll instruct you in that.
First we need to be sure we are partitioning the correct drive. Open up My Computer and write down what drive letter your seagate external drive is (i.e. G).
Now let's start up disk partition manager. click on the Start button, and then click on "Run" type in "diskpart" (without the quotation marks) and press enter. This will open up a command prompt window with the heading "Microsoft DiskPart...".
Type in the following command: "list disk".
This will bring up a list of all of your disks currently recognized by the computer. Be sure the drive letter you wrote down earlier is on this list, also write down the drive number corresponding to your seagate external at this time. now go ahead and select this volume by typing "volume __" where __ corresponds to the drive letter of your seagate drive.
Now that we have everything set up we will create the partition.
type "create partition [size=_]" where _ is the size of the partition you want to add, in megabytes (MB).
If you encounter any trouble or want something more than a simple partition see the full instruction to use the diskpart utility here:

I want to format the system


well you can use a bootable windows xp disk or actually any bootable windows or dos based operation system,go into your bios and make sure it is set to boot from CD.the rest is kinda self explaing..If you use a dos disk you'll have to Fdisk it or partion the hard drive.then format.if you use a XP cd its really self explaing.Just follow the on screen prompts and go like your reinstalling,When it ask you if you want to delete the partion and yes,then it will ask you to create a partion and yes or type C to create, then it will prompt you to format disk either quick or full.. Always choice full never quick.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.

Sata 2 hdd how to set to master 400gb


sata devices do not work like IDE, they do not have master/slave. If you want to set it to bootable, you have to go through the bios. On most computers, press DEL while it is booting, then go to "standard cmos features", search around a bit until you find where to set the bootable device list, and set the 400gb to the first.

HP laptop XP installation problem


ARUNVK, I used to use a win98se boot disk even on my first SATA drive because I prefer a FAT 32 over a NTFS & reduce my cluster size the 16k.
For the last couple of years Mfg's. have made it easer to use a bootable CD with all the setup utilities and testing software one can need. Suggest you do the same. Go to the drive's Mfg's site & download their disk utility/setup utilitys. Creat a bootable CD. You'll be able to boot into a dos like mode & format to your choosing. If you pick the standard NTFS you'll be stuck with a 4k cluster size but if you use a FAT32 you'll be able to pick your cluster size. Using the CD also helps with IDE drives & SATA's.
Creating more than one partition is just as easy. Also helps with systems the show the blue screen of death. Fix's them as well.

Good Luck & kind regards.
& please vote.
