So my Windows 7 installation keeps hanging on "Setup is starting..." forever, and a solution posted was to disable the floppy disk drive port since it's not being used. I'm kinda a newbie as this is my first PC Build, so thanks for the help.
Download the SATA driver from ftp://188.8.131.52/drivers/Intel/SATA/RapidStorage_Win...(v184.108.40.2060).zip
and install it.
Right click Computer, choose Manage, then Disk Management.
Right click the partition/volume you want to format and choose format. If not working, click delete and create a new one.
See if it does work this way. Make sure you save the necessary data from the partition you want to format and to not format/delete a wrong partition/volume. All data on it would be lost.
