HD not formating..
I just built a friend of mine a pc and i'm going to put xp pro on it. Well after putting in xp disk it goes through the agreements and up to the partitioning page. I then select to install and format the HD with no additional Partitions but after it jumps to the Formating page it is suck at 0% and wont move. I also just realized that its suppose to be a 250GB HD but its only showing 127.99. Its a WD Sata HD, any idea why this could be?
In the bios it shows it as 250gb and also on channel 2? I have a dvd drive also installed, but when i hooked it up it shows sata 1 is the HD and Sata 2 is the dvd drive. Any thoughts?
