    I have quad core AMD phenom processor + other stuff. Issue is I've got 1 Tb WD HDD. In the past i have tried all O/s Linux (ubuntu, opensuse, mandriva). also installed XP and 7 also tried virtualization software like Xen Server and VMware Workstation. Now hard disk is not functioning properly. i have cleaned all O/s and trying to install a new one. but failing. Windows gives blue stop error. Linux gives Kernal panic error. Suggest me a bootable software which can wipe my HDD clean and fresh. Thnx
