Has Vista previously been installed on this drive. If it has goto Darik.

You can use the Hard Drive Makers Testing Utility to Test the Drive

Hitachi / IBM - DFT "Drive Fitness Test"
Works with all manufacturers

Western Digital "Data Lifeguard"
Works with WD drives only

Fujitsu "FJDT"
Works with fujitsu models only

Samsung "hutil"
Compatability unknown...

Seagate "Seatools"
Works with Seagate drives only

If the Drive tests out OK then use this to wipe it. Autonuke should do it.

Darik's Boot and Nuke

Recreate your Partitions and you should be good to go.
