I'm trying to format a new hard drive. It get's to 6% and sits there. I've tried it several times, I never get an error message it just doesn't move any farther. I'm a novice at this so wonder if I'm doing something wrong. I have to install windows 98 and then upgrade to xp pro. I thought it was a bad hard drive so bought a new one. It's the same with the new or old one.

You can install XP from the upgrade CD without installing 98 first. You'll be asked to insert the 98 CD during the installation to prove ownership of a previous version of Windows.
