I have an old cpu and am currently of the process of performing a clean install of windows xp. I am currently in the process of doing a clean installation and the system is formatting the existing hard disk. This process is taking a very long time as it has only reached 80% in the past 16 hours. I tried using quick format but it gives me an error message. Am i doing anything wrong here?? and is there a way to speed up this process?

Get a new hard drive, chances are very good the one in the system is bad.
