Format Terminated

By l2827r ·
I had winxp on a home computer and needed to format the hard drive. I began the formatting process and it stopped at 19% with Not Ready Format Terminated. I restarted and went thru the process all over but kept getting same message. Any suggestions???

bad hard drive

Sounds like the hard drive is failing. I would run a diagnostic test on the drive to check. You can go to the manufactures web site and get there utility.

Make sure you don't have virus protection enabled in the BIOS. This will prevent you from overwriting the MBR.
