Recently a HD of my mothers died, it contained vital info to her. So naturally, I booted into a Live CD and rescued the ****. So we got the data on my HD, we ran a ChkDsk and found several bad sectors. We cleared the harddrive; meaning we formatted it with a NTFS filesystem. Alright, so we stick in our Windows XP Professional SP2 disc. We load up, and it begins formatting. Then it starts copying setup files. So all goes well, however as soon as it hits installing Windows XP.. uh-oh. It hangs at: "Setup will complete in approximately 39 minutes...". So we waited like 10-15 minutes to see if it'd change, nope. So well on hope was lost, it did. "Setup will complete in approximately 37 minutes..."; "Installing Devices"... the gauge moving very slow like its crawling. The gauge looks like its going to take an hour or so to fill. Whats going on, and is the HD dead? We can't just go out and buy a replacement HD as they don't make this kind anymore, and buying an entire new tower is pricey.. ideas?
