I just built a new HTPC with
-ASUS M3A78-EM AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX
The primary drive is 400GB Hitachi SATA and it has a version of XP from a different PC, so when I boot up I get the blue screen which is to be expected. I'd like to format the drive so that I can install a new OS. Normally I'd just use the manufacturers set up CD but apparently Hitachi no longer offers their disk utility tool on the web.
Is there a generic tool can I use to format the drive so that I can install the new OS, or is there a better method? I tried FDISK from the Asus DVD but had problems - maybe because it's SATA drive.
