As the title said, I'm trying to reformat my hard drive. My OS is windows XP pro. So I loaded my system disk into my cd-drive and told the computer to boot from CD-ROM. I enter the windows setup and it loads the files it needs. I am then asked if I want to continue setting up windows or if I want to use a recovery utility. I choose continue setting up windows. At this point the setup utility tells me I do not have a hard drive connected or powered on, and to run diagnostic services on the device. I can still boot into windows, so I don't see how its possible to have a problem with my hard drive. I have run a diag. device on the harddrive and the results turn out fine. What gives? help would be greatly appreciated.
