Windows Installation Error (1 Viewer)

I hope someone will be able to help me.

I've just built a computer and I tried installing Windows on it. So I format the HDD in NTFS (only option given) and when it was done, it gave me the following error message:

'Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged.

Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If the disk is a SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI devices are properly terminated. Consult your computer manual or SCSI adapter documentation for more information.'


I don't think the disk is damaged because its capacity was shown on the screen.



Please tell me where to go from here. I'd appreciate it as I'm lost. :down:

1. Open windows

2. Pick up computer

3. Drop computer through window

4. Check if you hit anyone

If yes:
4a. Call ambulance (optional)
4b. Sing Shaggy's "Wasn't me"

If no:
5. Relax

I really find it fascinating how you put together the PC and you've never even installed windows before! :D

Forget windows, install something else ;)

Sounds like a problem with the harddrive, if that's the case there's nothing you can do..
