A user did this to correct the problem.

I changed my HDD (f2) config from SATA to something else (can't remember what but it is the other option in hardware setup). Then I booted up from my WIN set-up disk and formatted the hdd (QUICK FORMAT).

I then shut down the laptop and re-started it, (f2) changed my HDD config back to SATA, and re-booted the laptop with the correct WIN CD in the drive. I them did a complete format of the HDD and all is well.
