Try formatting with your OS disk (Windows / Linux / whatever).

well i havnt gotten any errors but i heres the process

first after i put in the windows cd
i go to the one with support
then while in a drive i type in fdisk
install a primary whatever
restart
same process except instea of fdisking, iwould format c:
then it would freeze at a percent
