Ok, I got Windows 2000 installed on a laptop hd i got from ebay (brand new in bag 40 gb toshiba). I then tried to update to Windows XP Home but for some reason when formatting the drive at like 79% an error came up saying make sure disk isnt damaged or disconnected? So that was weird right, so i try again, and same error. I decided to try Windows 2000 again, but no go. So i put in windows 98 boot floppy and do some fdisk /mbr and then delete all the partitions, then make new partitions, but when i try to create new partition it seems to be hanging on verifying drive integrity... Its been sitting for 5-10 minutes now and its at 1%... Any ideas? is the drive bricked or what?
