I've reformatted plenty of times before but this has never happened to me that I recall.. I placed in win xp home into dvd rom. restarted. deleted the partition. as I went to create the partition it won't let me pick wich format type. It shows just the size that i can pick for the format but not able to pick NTFS at all. When I create with what I can it shows [new (Raw)] as the format. When I go to install it says that I can't install on that format. I have a UATA and a SATA HDD.. both are 120GB.. Unbuntu is installed on the sata hdd. windows xp home was installed on the uata hdd. All I want to do is reformat my uata with windows xp again.
