Trying to reformat an old Laptop ran into a problem never had before
As soon as it was done reformataing my old Compaq Evo N100C I got this Error
Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged. Make
sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If
the disk is a SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI devices are properly terminated.
Consult your computer manual or SCSI adapter documentation for more
I then could not even boot up into the operating system. It gave me a general error about going into an operating system.
I am pretty sure my HDD is fine as I was on it 30 min before I was reformatting it.
Any ideas? The bios really sucks on this computer...
