Ive bought a new WD 160GB hard drive. Put it in my computer and tried to install XP on it using the XP cd. Firstly i have to format it, but it will not do this it doesnt get past 0%. Tried making it the slave drive and formatting it using windows and DOS but still just stays on 0%.
Also in the blue format screen, it says that i only have 127GB rather than 160GB.
I read somewhere on the internet that motherboards usually need updating if this happens, i was wondering if the two were related, and thats the reason that the HD won't format as well. I have a asrock k7s8 motherboard could someone point me in the direction of how to update the BOIS (if it needs doing) and where i would find the BOID update. thanks
