I am trying to set up a new Windows 2000 Advansed Server. I have a hardware raid-5 (SCSI Adaptec AAA-130U2 3x9Gb). Drivers have been installed without any visible problems. A new disk (17Gb) created. Now I am failing to format it. I have tried to run a format from "Disk Management" panel and from Windows Explorer. Each time the process take about 1 hour to get to 100% on indicator. Then it freeses for about 5 hours in this status (Formatting: 100%), and than displays a message: "Windows unable to format this disk."
Did anybody encounter this problem?

Yes, same problem with AAA-133u2 3x18gb.  Got to 99 percent formatted then it left the building.... Finally gave and waiting for new driver to be released may 1st.  Also tried setting up 0/1 with 4x18gb and same problem.  They just haven't got there software sorted out, adaptec that is.
