    Can’t format HDD

    Locked

    by lesvipond ·

    I had a wierd problem the other day & thought I would share it. I had a PC that was acting up. Thinking it might be software related, I decided to reload the operating system (windows 2000). THe system is on a network, so there was no data to worry about. When I tried to format the drive & load windows, the system would go to 98% complete on the format and error out. I could format it with a Windows 98 install CD, but not a Windows 2000 install CD.
    To make a long story short, the problem ended up being bad memory.
