    i have no idea really but its wiped the hardrive so it is just blank. it is in NTFS and set active. whenever i put in the windows disc it loads up files then says "press enter to install" i press it and it then says it cannot find a hardrive. does anyone know how to partion or format a hardrive so it will be found even tho it is blank and has nothing on it ?
