Hello, try to format seagate 2tb but keeps stopping at 54% any ideas i'm running vista home basic
More aboutcant format hard drive
try to check if it's in working order using seatools
if it passes, try formatting using diskpart (and becareful) first select disk 1 (or whatever number, see list disk) then clean followed by create partition primary and select partition 1 followed by format fs=ntfs
if that fails too, you might have a bad disk or os
thanks tried all that and also tried seagate diskwizard but nothing i think the drive might be faulty.
hello, Try to run command in cmd (command prompt) as "chkdsk drive or partition name like c: , d: , etc..". then, type "format partition or drive name like c: drive, d:drive,etc..
>chkdsk h: <enter> >format h: <enter>
If you have a bootable windows disc, any windows disc, try formatting through that. First, boot from cd/dvd. When the installation shows you the partitions, click on the drive/partition you wanted to format, and hit 'Format'. It'll do the trick..!
