When formating HD... I get error message that says "trying to recover allocation unit."

Would someone please tell me what's going on with this error message. I did a fdisk, patitioned & formatted the drive. During the formatting, I get a message that says "trying to recover allocation unit." (the formatting process is extremely slow) Once complete, I copy the system files reboot and try to access drive c:, I get an error message that says invalid media. I don't understand because I just finished reformatting the drive.
