We have just had one hard drive fail and I am trying to install a new western digital 40 gb hard drive. I am using the windows 2000 disk to format the drive and it gets to 81% complete and freezes. I have tried several times, one with the failed drive set as a slave so I could try to get data off of it and two times with only the new drive in and set as alone. Never had this problem before.
(P.S. am fairly sure previous problem rests with old hard drive since I put it into another machine as both master and slave and could not access the drive)
Must get company computers up and running. Need Quickbooks for operations.
