I got this message after trying to format my hard-drive. I've done many of these before(format & clean insatll), never had this problem. anyone have any Idea's. Also, when booting up the first time, had fatal exceptions errors and was booted into safe mode before all drivers and hardware was ditected. Any help would be great, Thanks!!

Is it a compaq computer or a laptop?

The reason I am asking in most Compaq's and in some Laptops a small partion is setup on the hard drive that emulates and stores system configuration files and acts as a virtual ROM so to speak. By formatting the drive with this partition you may corrupt the settings in that partition or alter it in such a way that it is no longer functional, thus having to download a set of utility and diagnostic disks in order to set it up or repair it.

DOS : boot sur floppy, fdisk, boot sur floppy, format c: /S
WINDOWS XX : boot sur CD (si bios le permet), sinon, boot sur disquette(s) d'install
LINUX : boot sur CD (si bios le permet), sinon, boot sur disquette(s) d'install
