help on formating hard disk

here is the deal:

- I got two new hard drives (working as RAID-0), then had some problems installing windows (ME, and finaly XP) but everything went good.

Then I wanted to do a clean start, so I've deleted the partions through the fdisk, and have set my RAID properties.

Then I created a portion on a disk, but cannot format it. It stops in the middle of format, and then quits, and shows a message saying it cann't format because of a read error.

Any suggestions? I just need the portion to be formated!

- does it go any simpler?

:confused: still running...

OK.
what I've done is took the drives on the separate computers (no RAID) and created one partion, and then run format.

one hard drive (40GB) formated no problems, and I think it is fixed. :cool:
but the other HD (60GB) has problems, and in the format program it 'tryies' (thats what is says) to recover the clasters. It took the computer to get to 650000's cluster in 4 hours, and is still running. :eek:

p.s. I wonder how many weeks would it take? :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
