How do you format a new, fresh, hard drive to NTFS???? Without using an XP
system or installation disk? I know for old stuff you can use fdisk and
format in DOS.

More about : format disk ntfs

Did the hard drive come with a CD? If so there should be a utility for
formatting the drive on it. You cannot use FDISK to format in NTFS. You can
also put the drive in a machine with XP or NT as a slave, format it and
remove the drive.
