I just built my second computer.
I am using a Maxtor Sata HD. Windows XP pro was formatting the HD for 20 Minutes at 0%. I thought for sure something was wrong and it was just going to stay at 0% all night. I turned off the computer to try again.
Now all I get is "Error loading Operating System", after Verifying DMI Pool Data....
Am I screwed? Any help or suggestions is Greatly appreciated.

Put in the Maxblast disk that should have come with the drive and do diagnostics, if it tests out fine, have Maxblast write 0's to the drive and reformat.

Cheers

No disk came with the HD. I bought all the computer parts from Newegg, and the all drives came wrapped in bubble wrap, no boxes directions nothing. Can I download this Maxblast to a floppy?

.Everything seems great atm, but why do I always have a problem installing my wireless network card on Windows XP? My other system had the same problem... I install the new hardware and windows doesn’t seem to recognize it.. I install the drivers and nothing changes. The funny thing is I know If I change PCI slots(the network card), window will then recognize new hardware. Is this normal?
